This is such an unfortunate tragedy.
Salma Hayek‘s brother has reportedly been involved in a car accident that ended up being deadly.
The actress’ younger brother, Sami Hayek, was supposedly driving a 2006 Ford GT sports car on Sunset Boulevard in El Lay when he apparently lost control of the vehicle. He ended up crossing traffic lanes and collided with a 2011 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.
Sami was hospitalized with broken ribs and facial lacerations on Sunday afternoon, but the passenger in his vehicle sadly passed away at the scene of the accident. The name of the passenger is unknown at the time, but he is reportedly a 43-year-old male from Mexico.
The driver of the pickup truck, Alvin Javier Gomez, was taken to a hospital for treatment of a broken foot and body pain.
As of now, the fatal accident is under investigation because it is unknown why Sami, 40, crossed the traffic lanes and collided with the other vehicle.
