True Blood's Stephen Moyer Walks Away Unhurt After Flipping Car
Stephen Moyer walked away unscathed after flipping his car qualifying for a celebrity driving race Friday.
During his seventh lap in the qualifying rounds of the 35th Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, which will take place today, the True Blood actor's car slid into the tire barrier causing it to do a 360-degree roll before landing back on its tires, the Long Beach, Calif., Press Telegram reports.
"I was getting quicker and quicker and quicker and I was braking later and later and later. It was total driver error. It was a surreal experience. It felt like a roller-coaster ride when my car flipped," he told the paper.

Despite the accident, Moyer came away with the No. 1 qualifying time among the 13 celebrity drivers. He was rewarded with a check worth $15,000 for his charity of choice, Racing for Kids, and the pole position for today's race.
"I want to apologize to the rest of the drivers for ruining everyone's qualifying session," he said, "but I really wanted to get the money for the kids."
The remainder of the qualifying session was run under a yellow caution flag. Moyer joked, "As soon as I got that time, I decided to ruin it for everyone else."
Among the other celebrities racing were Brian Austin Green, Frankie Muniz, Tito Ortiz and Jillian Barberie Reynolds.
