LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California Highway Patrol has released audio of two motorists' calls reporting erratic driving and the aftermath of an early-morning collision involving actor-comedian Chris Kattan.
Kattan was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early Monday after crashing into a road crew on westbound U.S. 101 in Southern California. No one was injured in the crash and Kattan was released after his arrest.
Audio released Wednesday shows dispatchers received two calls related to Kattan's driving and accident. One caller estimated the actor was traveling around 70 mph moments before the crash. Another motorist who reported the accident described the 43-year-old comedian leaving his car and walking on the highway afterward.
Kattan's manager and agent did not immediately return email messages seeking comment.
