DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg was involved in a serious car accident in Beverly Hills last week.
Katzenberg’s Tesla was “totaled” after he crashed into another car on the morning of Oct. 19, an individual with knowledge of the situation tells Variety. Katzenberg suffering several injuries, including a hurt wrist and a head bump, following the accident.
He returned to his office briefly the following day, according to the source, before checking into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for the next three or four days, where he underwent surgery for a broken arm.
He was back at Cedars-Sinai this week, but for a much happier reason. The DreamWorks Animation chief was on hand to celebrate the birth of his first grandchild on Tuesday.
Katzenberg was back to work on Friday and attended GLSEN’s Respect Awards, sporting a pink cast. He made a tongue-in-cheek remark at the charity benefit’s red carpet about Elon Musk saving his life, which the Tesla CEO responded to on Monday night.
“Compliment from Jeffrey is much appreciated, but the people of Tesla deserve all the credit,” Musk tweeted.
