Speed may be a factor in Hayek crashComment on this story
Los Angeles - Los Angeles police say speed may be a factor in a deadly crash involving Salma Hayek's brother.
Lieutenant Andrew Neiman tells the Los Angeles Times that 40-year-old Sami Hayek may have been going too fast on a curvy stretch of Sunset Boulevard when he lost control of a high-powered Ford GT on Sunday afternoon.
Neiman says the muscle car fishtailed, crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a pickup truck.
The crash broke Hayek's ribs and killed his passenger, photographer and Grammy-winning art director Ian Cuttler Sala.
The pickup driver suffered a broken foot.
Neiman says no drugs or alcohol were involved.
The actress's younger brother is a furniture designer.
Efforts to reach him and Salma Hayek were unsuccessful.
According to his website, the 43-year-old Cuttler won a Grammy for his design of the ‘Johnny Cash: The Legend’ music box set. - Sapa-AP
