I am Los Angeles airport accident attorney, Michael Ehline. I have over 20 years of experience helping accident victims. My law firm has represented thousands of people and has obtained over $150 Million on their behalf. Below I will discuss the Tyler Perry car crash and some pitfalls accident victims face, including how to form an attorney-client relationship.
The 52-year-old movie star and director were unexpectedly involved in a T-bone collision with a Honda Accord while driving his Bentley SUV in Sherman Oaks. Perry was on his way home from Burbank Airport on a Wednesday night on 15 December 2021 when this occurred.
[Page Updated 06/13/2022] While none of the drivers were hurt, both cars were damaged.
Fortunately, nobody was taken to the hospital, no police report was needed, and the property damage was to be handled privately, per law enforcement sources.
Tyler Perry also brought back the famous Madea character in the 2022 Netflix movie:
A Madea Homecoming. He announced this via a short video clip on his Instagram account.
This movie was brought out two years after his last movie premiere:
A Madea Family Funeral. Tyler Perry stated that this was because we all needed a laugh considering everything going on in the country.
Mabel “Madea” Simmons was debuted by the Louisiana native in 1999 with a series of live plays that sold out venues across the US. Perry extended his business once Madea became a household name.
Madea’s Family Reunion, Madea’s Family Funeral, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Madea Goes to Jail, and other films were written, directed, and produced by Perry.
Tyler Perry doesn’t say much these days because he’s busy working on various projects. Tyler was said to be producing a prequel TV series based on his popular character Madea in April, as reported previously.The show, which will air on Showtime, will depict his Madea persona’s beginnings, the same figure who helped launch his professional career and made him into a household brand.
Additionally, Tyler has several written series that air on BET+ and BET, on top of his current work with Showtime.
The other California driver, a female driver driving a Honda accord, caused the accident after veering across three lanes of traffic, causing the Bentley to strike the driver’s side of the Honda. Her car hit Perry’s Bentley SUV as he was driving home from the airport.
But thankfully, both parties were absolutely fine, according to the press and police reports. The other driver cut across three lanes of traffic but had the integrity to accept fault.
The woman confessed to causing the car accident – the accident occurred while Perry was on his way back from Burbank airport.
Were you involved in a car accident? Fortunately, this wasn’t a severe occurrence that mainly resulted in property damage to the driver’s side of the defendant’s Honda. The driver’s side of the at-fault vehicle was totally smashed in, while the Bentley owned by the mogul had only minor damage to its front bumper.
