Early Sunday morning the former LA Lakers player Derek Fisher was involved in a car accident that ended up landing him in jail.
Fisher was driving on the 101 fwy in Los Angeles early Sunday morning when he flipped over his Cadillac, that both him and his girlfriend Gloria Govan were in. Both Fisher and Govan were able to walk away from the accident without any injuries, but Fisher did walk away with a DUI.
TMZ reports that Fisher swerved into the right shoulder of the 101 when he collide with the raised curb and guardrail which resulted in the car flipping. TMZ caught up with Fisher the day after the DUI arrest and got a few words from the ex basketball player.
Fisher was not able to comment on what exactly happened but when asked if it would happen again he said “It won’t.” “The most important part is that we’re here and no one else was injured” also adding, “from here, just need to focus on the positives.”
A rep for Fisher and Govan released a comment, “On behalf of Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan, they would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. They are beyond grateful that they are both okay and that no one else was involved. Both Derek and Gloria are home and ask that you respect their privacy.”
We’re glad both were able to walk away from the crash unharmed and we hope Fisher sticks to his word on this not happening again.
