TMZ is saying that the actor lost control of his Maserati and ran into the hillside on Malibu Canyon Road.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Leland Tang tells TMZ officers asked Gibson if he was on a cell phone and he said no. Police asked him if he had fallen asleep at the wheel, since the crash happened at 8:35 p.m. - "but he did not give a firm 'yes' or 'no'," said Tang. Gibson repeated several times, "I don't know how the car left the roadway." According to the report, "DUI is not suspected in the accident." No citations or tickets were given out. His car was towed and he got picked up by a friend.
