The Lakers’ guardian, Ben McLemore, was unharmed after a scary car accident following the Los Angeles win over the Golden State Warriors.
Early Thursday after the Lakers defeated Golden State, police were called into a single car accident after McLemore crashed his truck into a gate arm. TMZ received photos of the scene showing the vehicle awkwardly balanced on the gate arm, which was thoroughly destroyed.
McLemore took a field sobriety test, which he passed. He was neither arrested nor charged and walked away from the scene unscathed. He told officers that he accidentally pressed the accelerator pedal instead of the brake, which led to the accident.
McLemore’s accident followed a dramatic victory over the warriors. The Veterans Guard went unused in this win after averaging 8.0 points in 21 regular season games for the Lakers.
