Amanda Bynes’ Car Troubles


Aside from Kenan Thompson on Saturday Night Live, the most successful former All That alum was Amanda Bynes, thanks to her roles in comedies like She’s the ManEasy A and Hairspray. But oh, how the mighty have allegedly fallen. Bynes was allegedly involved in yet another car accident, marking her fourth incident in just two months. According to TMZ, the most recent accident, a hit-and-run allegedly happened on 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley on April 10th, just four days after her DUI arrest.

According to the victim, she was hit by a BMW that took off upon the encounter. The victim chased after the other car, which ran a red light and was lost, but not before managing to take down the license plate number. After the plates were run, it was discovered that the car was a rental currently out in Bynes’ name.

Now, clearly we’re all innocent until proven guilty, but something tells me maybe Ms. Bynes would benefit from a little remedial drivers’ education course. Here’s some helpful reminders: 

1. Driving away from the scene of an accident is pretty bad. Scratch that, really bad. 

2. Drunk driving: Good Sublime song, terrible idea. 

3. When it doubt, call a cab. You can afford it. 

4. Hollywood starlets are not – repeat, not – exempt from the rules of the road.
5. Lather, rinse, repeat.
