Police Say

Beverly Hills police have announced that actor Lane Garrison was driving his SUV last Saturday when it crashed, killing one passenger and injuring two others. They also feel Garrison had been drinking and driving.

Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mitch McCann said, “Mr. Garrison displayed symptoms of alcohol intoxication, and the investigation into Mr. Garrison’s impairment is ongoing. In addition to noting Mr. Garrison’s symptoms, investigators also removed alcohol containers from the SUV.”

The ‘Prison Break’ actor lost control his 2001 Land Rover shortly before midnight, striking the center median, hitting a tree and rolling over. A 17-year old male in the front passenger seat was ejected by the impact. Two 15-year old girls in the back seat had to be freed by the fire department. All four were taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where the boy was pronounced dead. One of the girls remains in serious condition.

The 26-year old actor, who received minor injuries, was released but not immediately arrested. Garrison purportedly met the girls at a nearby supermarket and they had invited him to a party.

Garrison grew up in Richardson, Texas, living with the family of Ashlee and Jessica Simpson. The girls’ father, Joe Simpson, who is a former pastor, opened his house to the troubled teen after Garrison’s parents died. Garrison played David ‘Tweener’ Apolskis on the Fox television series. His character was killed off earlier this season.
