Nobody was hurt, so it’s ok to laugh at this. A 19-year-old (I guess I shouldn’t say “kid”) was riding his scooter through LA. He was heading to pick up some kids to babysit (I’m assuming he was going to their house, not having them ride the scooter). Anyway, as he was passing by some production studios Ashton was driving out.

It was when Ashton Kutcher was leaving that studio that he hit the teen, Leo Marenghi, with his car. Leo pretty much immediately fell off the scooter, and except for a skinned knee, he was unharmed. When he looked up, he saw Ashton standing over him, concerned. Leo says “I was on the floor and when I got up he was getting out of his car… He was really nice about it and acted concerned. He asked me if I was okay and I said, ‘Yeah, I’m fine. Can I get a picture with you?'” And that’s all there was to it.

Here’s the picture that the two took:

Leo wasn’t hurt during the fall except for a scrape on his knee. We’re assuming his scooter was mostly ok as well. Leo says that Ashton was driving his black Tesla, so we’re sure that it got some damage. But honestly, I’m sure that was the last of Ashton Kutcher’s concern. “I don’t intend to go after him [legally]. I feel like it was kind of my fault because I was on a scooter and it was hard to see me… I just feel like that would be trashy,” says Leo. Look, accidents happen, there’s really no reason to “go after” someone if you’re just fine, good on you, Leo!
