According to Los Angeles Daily News, Derek Fisher and his girlfriend Gloria Govan had an accident today.

Former Los Angeles Laker and ex-New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after his vehicle overturned today on the 101 Freeway. His lone passenger, former “Basketball Wives” reality star Gloria Govan, escaped injury.

The crash was a little after 3 a.m. on the westbound freeway, approaching the 405 Freeway interchange. Fisher, 42, was driving a 2015 Cadillac, the California Highway Patrol reported.

Fisher was driving in the number four lane, approaching the 405 interchange, when he allowed the vehicle to veer right and onto the paved right shoulder.

The Cadillac continued across the right shoulder and hit the raised concrete curb and wood/metal guardrail, on the shoulder.

The impact caused the vehicle to overturn, and it came to rest on its roof, blocking the three and four lanes of the northbound 101 Freeway.

Fisher and Govan, 32, were helped out of the vehicle and they both reported no injuries.

Derek Fisher played in the NBA 18 seasons with Los Angeles Lakers, Utah Jazz, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder, and he never had any accident except with Matt Barnes.
