Movie star Mark Wahlberg has been praying for his Shooter costar Lane Garrison after learning the embattled actor was responsible for a December car crash that left a teenager dead.

Prison Break star Garrison was charged with vehicular manslaughter, and turned himself into the authorities in Los Angeles yesterday.

He was driving three teenagers home from a Hollywood party when he lost control of his Land Rover. One 17-year-old passenger was killed and two 15-year-old girls were left with injuries.

And while many were quick to blame the 26-year-old actor and criticize his judgment, Wahlberg admits he just wanted to offer his costar spiritual help.

The Oscar nominee says, "I certainly pray for him every single day of my life... I'll speak to Lane and wish him the best.

"It was a horrible accident. It's a tragedy for everybody involved and we're just praying for everybody."

Garrison was freed on $100,000 bail and his arraignment was postponed until April 11. He faces six years and eight months in prison if convicted.
