Shia LaBeouf is still recovering from the car accident that nearly cost him his hand.
“The car hit me at 70 m.p.h.,” he tells Entertainment Tonight. “It was one of the biggest things that’s happened to me, for sure, in my life. I’m grateful to be here.”
Well, we’re happy too, but Shia also said that he’s expecting another surgery soon. “I’m working right now. We propped [my hand] together so I could get through Transformers and then I’ll go have another surgery and be back to 100 percent.”
At the time of the accident, Shia was cited for misdemeanor DUI. Sgt. Scott Wolf told People, “He was showing obvious signs of intoxication from the smell of alcohol coming from his breath.” Although he has yet to be formally charged with the crime, new evidence arose on behalf of the actor; he may not have been at fault because the other driver was found to have run a red light.
Lucky break, my friend.
