Actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was involved in a multi-vehicle crash Friday evening in Los Angeles with a representative telling People magazine that he wasn’t hurt.

“He is fine, his only concern right now is for the woman who was injured,” the representative said.

The crash happened around 4:35 p.m. PT on West Sunset Boulevard and Allenford Avenue, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a news release.

“As West L.A. Area officers arrived at scene, it was determined that four vehicles were involved,” police said.

One woman was taken to a hospital for an abrasion on her head, LAPD said.

“Neither alcohol or drugs are suspected as a factor in this collision. All parties remained at scene,” the LAPD said. CNN has reached out to Schwarzenegger’s representatives for comment.

Schwarzenegger, 74, ran for governor as a Republican and won in 2003, ousting Democrat Gov. Gray Davis.

The actor-turned-politician, the most recent GOP member to lead the state, was reelected as governor in 2006 and left office in 2011. He was the only person in California history to win a gubernatorial race in a recall election.

The Austrian-born movie star moved in 1968 to the United States where he thrived as a bodybuilder and an actor, winning Mr. Universe, Mr. Olympia, and Mr. World competitions.

He also landed the lead roles in films “Conan the Barbarian,” “The Terminator,” and “Total Recall.”
