It would almost be comical, if not for the fact that it’s so serious: Nickelodeon alumnus Amanda Bynes was reportedly involved in her second car accident in as many weeks Monday night — the latest in a series of fender-benders that started with her DUI arrest in early April.
What I Like About You star Amanda Bynes needs to learn to like being chauffeured by a driver, because TMZ is reporting that the 26-year-old was rear-ended by another car in the San Fernando Valley area of California on Monday evening.
So, the sometimes-actress may not have slammed into someone else (for a change), but the driver of the other car contends Amanda “made a reckless maneuver” that “triggered the collision.”
The car that had the misfortune of being driven by Amanda was a rental. This is important because her BMW is, reportedly, in the body shop. Why?
Little more than two weeks ago to the day, fender-bender Bynes was accused of hitting a Los Angeles woman’s car — and then getting the heck out of dodge.
“She didn’t recognize the woman at first — because she ‘looked like a hot mess,’” the gossip site said of the victim of the alleged hit-and-run in early August. “But once they began talking, she realized it was Amanda Bynes.”
You’d think one hit-and-run would be enough, but this was Amanda’s third in three months — with two others on May 5 and May 27.
Amanda Bynes has appeared to be in competition with fellow “bad starlets club” member Lindsay Lohan ever since early April, when she was arrested on a misdemeanor DUI charge after sideswiping a cop’s car at 3 a.m.
