After Shia LaBeouf was hospitalized with a hand injury due to a car accident in July, the star of new movie Eagle Eye stayed mum on the incident, which also involved his Transformers co-star Isabel Lucas.

 

But in tonight’s interview with Entertainment Tonights Mark Steines, Shia opens up about the accident, saying it was "eye opening and terrifying."

 

"The car hit me at 70mph," Shia says of the other vehicle. "It was one of the biggest things that’s happened to me, for sure, in my life. I’m grateful to be here."

 

Although the 22-year-old had been drinking and was cited with a misdemeanor for driving under the influence, authorities cleared him of blame for the collision, as the driver of the other car involved ran a red light before hitting Shia’s truck.
