Scary news over the weekend as news broke out Derek Fisher and his reality star girlfriend Gloria Govan were involved in a car accident.

TMZ broke the news along with a video showing the aftermath of the crash.

Via TMZ:

Derek Fisher was arrested on suspicion of DUI Sunday after crashing his car on the 101 Freeway following a night out at Catch in West Hollywood … and the wreckage looks gnarly.

Derek’s Cadillac flipped over just after 3 AM PT Sunday as he was heading northbound on the Ventura 101 Freeway. His passenger was “Basketball Wives” star Gloria Govan. Neither Derek nor Gloria were injured.

Derek was then arrested and jailed after it was determined he’d been drinking. The car wreck could have been deadly from how badly the car had flipped … based on video obtained by TMZ Sports.

Once the entertainment site posted the video, a rep for Derek and Gloria reached out to TMZ Sports. “On behalf of Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan, they would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. They are beyond grateful that they are both okay and that no one else was involved. Both Derek and Gloria are home and ask that you respect their privacy.”
