According to The Hollywood Reporter, talk show host Arsenio Hall was uninjured in a minor car accident which occured around 7:15 pm/PT yesterday in West HIlls, CA. Sgt. Russell Carr told the City News Service that Hall lost control of his Porsche and drove into a dirt shoulder.

It remains unclear how the 'Coming to America' star lost control of the car, but police have confirmed that drugs and alcohol were not involved. The car had to be towed.

Hall recently returned to late night TV with THE ARSENIO HALL SHOW, which premiered on September 9, 2013. The show features a mix of comedy, music and celebrity guests, bringing a fresh new perspective to the late-night scene.

The daily, one-hour nationally Syndicated late-night talk show is anchored by the Tribune Broadcasting station group, which has stations in seven of the top 10 markets, including WPIX in New York, KTLA in Los Angeles and WGN in Chicago. The show will air across the country, including CW affiliates in 30 of the top 50 markets, primarily in 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. time slots. Check local listings for details.

An Emmy Award-winner, the original The Arsenio Hall Show broke ground with iconic moments like Bill Clinton playing his saxophone, Michael Jackson's guest appearance with Eddie Murphy and Mariah Carey's television debut. It ran from 1989 to 1994, introducing "woof, woof" and the "Dog Pound" into the pop culture conscious. A new generation discovered Arsenio when he appeared and won the fifth edition of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" in 2012.

Arsenio began his career in stand-up comedy, and soon caught the eye of television executives who tapped him for guest appearances on shows such as "Solid Gold" and "The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson," which led to his hosting Fox's "The Late Show" in 1997. In addition to his stand-up and hosting work, Arsenio established a career as an actor in movies such as "Coming to America" and TV shows such as the CBS dramedy "Martial Law."
