The 53-year-old actor crashed a blue Mini Cooper into a garage before driving off and ploughing into a two-storey house resulting in a massive fire.
The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) confirmed that a female adult found within the vehicle had been taken to hospital by LAFD paramedics in a "critical condition". The home's occupant escaped unharmed.
"59 firefighters took 65 minutes to access, confine and fully extinguish the stubborn flames within the heavily damaged structure," an LAFD report stated.
