Sean Flynn, who starred in Zoey 101, was involved in a minor traffic accident, but when he and the other driver pulled over to exchange information the situation quickly changed and became almost deadly. Although the car accident was minor, what happened after that almost turned into a fatal tragedy, according to Radar Online.
Sean Flynn was involved in a minor traffic accident earlier this week and like all responsible drivers, he pulled over to exchange information with the other driver. In an exclusive report from Radar Online, Sean is in the hospital undergoing several injuries, which resulted from the accident.
An inside source told Radar Online, “On Tuesday, February 9, Sean was on his way to classes at Valley College and got into a minor accident with another driver, who was driving what looked like a 2001 Grey Nissan Altima. When Sean got out of his car to exchange paperwork, the driver of the other car gunned it at full speed and plowed right into Sean.”
The Flynn insider continued, “The other car, who was driven by a young male with a female passenger in the driver’s seat, struck Sean head on, throwing him up in the air and over the hood before crashing into the ground.”
Several eyewitnesses saw the accident happen and fortunately the could tell the make, model, and year of the car involved. However, the car that hit Sean sped away so fast that no one was able to see the license plate numbers.
Sean was rushed to the hospital, and his injuries were reported as serious, as doctors operated on him and tried to repair the damage done to his body. He allegedly has broken bones and his foot was almost completely severed off his leg.
Rory Flynn reported how serious her son’s injuries really are. She said, “Sean’s foot was almost severed off completely and right after the crash a bone is his leg was protruding through the skin. He also suffered multiple other broken bones.”
Sean is still in the hospital surrounded by his family as they stay by his bedside. Radar Online spoke with Sean Flynn to find out how he is doing and he told them something that his late grandfather, Errol Flynn used to say.
“I file this under the banner of s**t happens. Expect the unexpected.”
The accident has not dampened the young actors look on life and he even shared a selfie of himself in his hospital bed giving the thumbs-up sign.
Sean’s manager at Luber Roklin Entertainment, Danielle Lenniger, is also at the hospital by Sean’s bedside. Danielle said, “We fully support Sean and his family during this horrible tragedy. He is a very talented young man and we know he will pull through this, but all that we can hope for is that whoever is responsible for doing this to him is brought to justice.”
Sean’s mother, Rory Flynn, is the daughter of the late Errol Flynn and a former model and photographer, while his dad, Gideon Amir is a Hollywood producer. Sean was born on July 14, 1989 in Los Angeles California. His full name is Sean Rio Amir, and he was named after his uncle Sean, who disappeared in Cambodia in 1971.
