According to the California Highway Patrol report we obtained, the actress left the scene unharmed after being picked up by her husband, Dave Bugliari.
She was sitting in the right front passenger seat of a Ford Edge, heading south in lane 2 of the 405, when her uncle “started having an unknown medical problem (possible heart attack)” and had fainted.
The SUV he was driving then drifted out of its lane and struck a black SUV, which fled the scene of the collision. Milano reportedly discovered that her uncle was unconscious when she “felt an impact on the right side” of her vehicle. The report says she was then able to “stop the Ford between tracks # 1 and # 2”, “with the help of a Good Samaritan.”
Sources told TMZ, which was the first to break news of the crash, that Milano helped restrain the car by approaching the driver’s side and using his hand to brake. TMZ also reported that Milano gave his uncle CPR until first responders could get to the scene.
When the LAPD units arrived, they continued CPR. Los Angeles City Firefighters took over when they arrived at the scene and then transported Carp to UCLA Westwood Hospital.
Later that day, Milano took to Twitter to address Tuesday’s events, albeit vaguely. “We should all take every opportunity we have to protect the people we love. To get vaccinated. Wear masks. Close your weapons. Learn CPR. Small common sense actions, ”she wrote. “It’s not hard to take care of each other, but it’s important. “
We should all take every opportunity we have to protect the people we love. To get vaccinated. Wear masks. Close your weapons. Learn CPR. Small actions of common sense.
It’s not hard to take care of each other, but it’s important.
