Sandra Bullock is okay after a drunk driver slammed head-on into the car she was driving with her husband. We’re glad she’s okay, but we can’t help but remember the films, Crash and 28 Days, where she plays a drunk driver, of all things. The Boston Globe has the scoop:

Movie star Sandra Bullock and her husband were hit in a head-on collision by a drunk driver last night on East Main Street in this seaside town.

No one was injured, but both cars were towed. Lucille P. Gatchell, 64, of Gloucester was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to stay in marked lanes, a police report said.

Gatchell’s blood alcohol level was .20, more than twice the legal limit, the report said.

Bullock and her husband, Jesse James, were in a rented black 2008 Chevy SUV, which was being driven by Mark Hussey, 55, of Londonderry, N.H. Hussey told police he was driving down the road at 15 to 20 miles per hour when Gatchell’s Subaru Forester veered into his lane.
