Alyssa Milano quickly came to the aid of her uncle when they were involved in a car accident on Tuesday morning.
The actress and political activist, 48, was traveling in the passenger seat of a 2020 Ford Edge SUV driven by her 63-year-old uncle, Mitchell J. Carp, on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles when he started to have “an unknown medical issue (possible heart attack)” and became unconscious, according to a California Highway Patrol (CHP) press release obtained by Entertainment Tonight.
The SUV drifted into a neighboring lane and hit a passing black SUV. Milano, who was uninjured, told authorities that “with the assistance of a good Samaritan,” they were “able to bring the Ford to a stop” between lanes. The black SUV involved fled the scene.
CHP and West Los Angeles Area officers were notified of the accident at 9:49 a.m. PT.
TMZ had a few additional details, including that Milano reportedly stopped the moving car by reaching over her unconscious uncle and using her hand to push down on the brakes.
A rep for the Charmed alum has not yet responded to Yahoo’s request for comment, though she used Twitter to urge people to “learn CPR.”
