EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: Haley Joel Osment Flips Car, Alcohol Suspected

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. (July 20, 2006) -- Actor Haley Joel Osment was hospitalized early Thursday after he apparently lost control of his car while heading to his Los Angeles area home, authorities said.

UPDATE: An LA County Sheriff's Department official tells Access Hollywood that they suspect alcohol was involved in the collision involving Haley Joel Osment early today. A blood sample was obtained after the young actor was taken to Pasadena's Huntington Memorial Hospital this morning. The sample will be tested and results will be known within three weeks. If alcohol was indeed a factor, they will take the case to the District Attorney for prosecution. The sample will also be tested for the presence of drugs.

Requests for a statement by Access to Osment's manager have not yet been returned.

Osment, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his role as a boy who could see dead people in "The Sixth Sense," was driving a 1995 Saturn about 1 a.m. when the car collided with a brick pillar and flipped, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Greg Sisneros.

The 18-year-old actor was awake and talking following the crash, Sisneros said. He had been alone in the car and was taken to Huntington Hospital in nearby Pasadena.

Sisneros had no information on his condition, and an emergency-room receptionist said no one under that name was at the hospital.

Osment is set to appear in the upcoming "Home of the Giants."

In the film, he plays a high school journalist covering a basketball team as it heads toward the state championship. The film is slated for a Spring 2007 release.

La Canada Flintridge, a suburb of Los Angeles, is about 14 miles northeast of downtown.

When you only work artistic indie films, you don't get paid a whole lot.

That gimp is in no way comparable to Macaulay Culkin. When he's been in a film even half as good as Uncle Buck maybe I'll reconsider.

John Candy rocked in that film as well.

Wobbled or teetered, rather.

Never heard of this guy.

Sixth sense I've heard of, and I guess he's that kid.

You must admit that seeing dead people is no every day skill.

24-07-2006, 11:04:46
Venom has it, how special could it be?

24-07-2006, 11:12:09
The Iraqis see dead people pretty regularly too

24-07-2006, 12:30:02
well once you've added in the lebanese, israelis, afghans and then start thinking further afield, seeing dead people starts to look a lot more everyday

24-07-2006, 14:06:56
So this 6th sense business is just bull???

I'm waiting for the cross-over: Sixth Sense and Sensibility

'Oh Mr Bumfkin, you appear to be dead!'
'One would imagine a lady of your standing would have better manners than to publicly draw attention to a gentleman's shortcomings.'
