Grammy-winning musician Carlos Santana crashed into a parked vehicle in Las Vegas Friday night.
Santana was driving near Summerlin when the accident occurred because he was going home.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the rock guitarist was not reported to have been driving under the influence.
The exact details of the accident are unknown, but Santana walked away uninjured and the car he hit was unoccupied. The extent of the damages to the parked car is unknown at this time, reports The Associated Press.
Police Lieutenant Ken Romane reported that “he hit a parked car, it was a minor accident, is all.” Romane also indicated that the accident was not bad enough to warrant an official police report.
The 66-year-old performed on Thursday and Saturday nights. Santana has racked up 10 Grammy Awards, 3 Latin Grammy Awards and was listed by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
The musician became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s when his band, Santana, stormed the rock and Latin American music worlds.
