Salma Hayek’s Brother Sami Involved in Fatal Car Accident
Sami Hayek, the younger brother of bombshell actress Salma Hayek, was involved in a fatal car accident this weekend. The passenger in the car that Hayek was driving was killed on Sunday, Feb. 23 in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Radar Online reports the accident took place around 4:50PM on Sunday afternoon.
Here are the accident details as we understand them. Hayek was behind the wheel of a Ford GT, which is a powerful muscle car.
He was traveling east on Sunset Blvd. Officers said Hayek's car was moving at a high rate of speed when he lost control and tried to overcorrect. That action caused him to switch from the eastbound lane to the westbound lane, hitting a white pick up truck driven by a man, 20.
Hayek sustained injuries and was brought a hospital but his passenger, a man said to be 43, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was a native of Mexico and a friend of Hayek, but was not identified as his family still needed to be notified.
How sad and tragic.
