Pete Davidson was involved in a car accident as he departed from his stand-up comedy show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on Saturday night. An eyewitness reported that around 10 p.m., Davidson accidentally scraped the side of his car against a wall on his way out of the afterparty, that he hosted. It’s worth noting that the 29-year-old comic entered an 18-month diversion program in July after being charged with reckless driving from a previous incident. 

‘Oh s**t, that was Pete’

In the exclusive photos obtained by Page Six, Pete Davidson can be seen behind the wheel of a black GMC SUV, accompanied by another man in the passenger seat and three others in the backseat. These images also reveal multiple scrape marks spanning from the back door to the rear wheel on one side of the vehicle.

A source told Page Six that people nearby didn’t know Pete Davidson was in the car until he got out, which surprised everyone who saw the accident. Fans nearby then exclaimed, “Oh s**t, that was Pete!”

Pete held a cigarette while driving

In a photo, the ‘Saturday Night Live’ comic was seen holding what looked like a cigarette in his hand while driving. A seemingly cigarette-looking white stick was seen in his hands when he raised it to shield himself from paparazzi flashes.

The event also had Machine Gun Kelly and Ruby Rose in attendance. However, neither of them was with Davidson during his car crash as they had already left. Currently, the identities of the people with Davidson in the car remain unclear.

Pete crashed into a home in March

Davidson’s recent car accident comes after he crashed into a Beverly Hills home in March. He was accompanied by his then-girlfriend, actress Chase Sui Wonders during the accident. TMZ reported that the comic was driving a Mercedes-Benz at a high speed, jumping a curb in the Flats neighbourhood. Davidson received a reckless driving charge and was subsequently ordered to complete 50 hours of community service. 

In the same month, it was reported that he sought treatment for borderline personality disorder and PTSD. “Pete regularly goes to rehab for ‘tune ups’ and to take a mental break, so that’s what’s happening,” a friend of the comic told Page Six, at that time.
