Hollywood – On Tuesday, June 18th., a car slammed into the home of legendary game show host Bob Barker.
According to TMZ and Los Angeles Police reports, the car was involved in a traffic collision, and the impact sent the red sedan crashing into the concrete block wall that surrounds Bob’s house.
Mr. Barker’s home address is on Outpost Drive, but his front door and driveway are actually on Hillside Drive. This accident happened on the Outpost side of Bob’s property (by his side gate).
Police report that Mr. Barker was at home at the time of the incident, but was no where near the crash-site when it happened and is fine.
I have been to Bob’s home many times. I have even walked his dog with him around the neighborhood. It’s hard for me to understand how the impact of two cars (on quiet residential streets) could have sent this car into Mr. Barker’s wall. Somebody had to be speeding very fast up or down Outpost Drive.
