It should come as no surprise that drinking and driving no laughing matter. Just ask Ryan Reynolds. The Change-Up hunk recently opened up about his hellish ordeal after being struck by a drunk driver at the age of 19.

IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m going to leave my car here, be responsible.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ I started to walk home and I was hit by a drunk driver.Ã¢â‚¬Â It’s stories like this that make us question karma.
And this was no small bump, either. The impact left him in a coma and “broke every bone in my left side. I woke up three days later.” Oh my god, dude! We’re sorry for every bad things we said about The Green Lantern! But at least he had family around when he finally came to. “I remember my dad sitting there [with] a vomit tray. And I guess I had been heaving in my unconscious. And nothing says love like painting someone with three-day-old Gin Rummies. Just soaked the man head to toe in my vomit.Ã¢â‚¬Â That’s love, Ryan.
