Gilbert Arenas was NOT the problem in a crazy car crash earlier this month that wrecked his Maybach and caused another car to FLIP OVER … TMZ Sports has learned.
Arenas was involved in a terrifying accident back on July 7, when a 2000 Toyota RAV4 collided with his 2018 Mercedes on the 101 freeway in Encino, California.
But, the California Highway Patrol tells us a 27-year-old man, who was the driver of the Toyota, was actually at fault for the car crash … ’cause the CHP says he was speeding when he hit the NBA superstar.
Fortunately for everyone involved, the CHP says the man only suffered minor injuries … while 37-year-old Arenas was not hurt at all.
But, seriously, it’s crazy no one was hurt … we obtained 911 calls from the scene — and they paint a picture of a wild accident.
We’re told no arrests or citations were issued in the incident … and it’s unclear what the cost of all the damages were.
As for Arenas, he seemed to recover from the accident just fine … a week after the crash, he posted 4 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in a BIG3 win in Rhode Island.
