Crash hurts Salma Hayek's brother, kills passenger


LOS ANGELES (AP) - The brother of actress Salma Hayek was hospitalized with broken ribs after being involved in a Los Angeles car crash that killed his passenger.

Police Officer Zachary Hutchings says 40-year-old Sami Hayek was driving on Sunset Boulevard in a 2006 Ford GT on Sunday when he lost control and collided with a 2011 Toyota Tacoma pickup.

Coroner's officials say the crash killed 43-year-old Ian Cuttler Sala. According to his website, Cuttler was a photographer and art director who won a Grammy for his design of the "Johnny Cash: The Legend" music box set.

The driver of the Tacoma, 20-year-old Alvin Gomez, suffered a broken foot.

Hayek broke several ribs.

Investigators haven't determined what caused Hayek to lose control.

Hayek, the younger brother of the actress, is a furniture designer.

Accidents are caused by nature, crashes by distractions.

Wait a minute!
Sunset BLVD?
Haven't been through there in a while, but from what I remember that BLVD is infested with traffic day and night.

How can anyone generate enough speed to actually kill someone in a traffic accident?

No traffic at 4 in the morning, and if he was speeding, and that street winds and curves, and if he was driving drunk, anything is possible.

Lover's spat gone awry! "I swear.. If you leave me, I'll drive this car into a brick wall and kill us both." OH! I'm being bad. After all... someone did die. But like others, why post about an actress' brother. Next it will be "3rd time remove, great aunt of Actor slipped and twisted ankle." Didn't the heading make one think Hayek's brother died in accident.

I have a wealthy sibling and expect nothing from him. Why? Because he worked hard and earned everything he has. Now on that note, anytime I have asked for help, he has ALWAYS been there for me.
