are involved in minor fender bender... but the actor laughs it off as everyone walks away unharmed
Olivier Martinez has been busy playing the doting dad to stepdaughter Nahla while new wife Halle Berry takes some time out of the spotlight following the October 5 birth of the couple's son.
But the new father no doubt gave himself a bit of a shock when he was involved in a minor fender bender in a supermarket car park in Los Angeles on Sunday with the five-and-a-half-year-old in the car.
The French actor was dropping the youngster off with friends when his SUV was sideswiped by another four wheel drive at Ralph's in Studio City.
Damn Sunday drivers! Olivier Martinez found himself in a minor fender bender on Sunday when he was sideswiped by another SUV as he was dropping stepdaughter Nahla off with friends in a Ralph's car park
Close call: The rear left door of the 47-year-old's white SUV took the brunt of the impact, which appeared to be the side of the car Nahla was sitting on
In fact, once he had evaluated the damage and checked to make sure Nahla was safe and sound, the Taking Lives star laughed off the incident, even sharing a joke with the blonde, who was appearing concerned and a little flustered.
That's gonna cost you: The French actor and the blonde driver of the other car both got out and surveyed the damage, which appeared not to have been the star's fault
Not as bad as it looked: Both parties took photos on their camera phones and exchanged insurance details before going their separate ways, though the damage only appeared to be very minor
The star was wearing cuffed jeans, brown shoes, a bright orange Broncos Super Bowl T-shirt and black leather jacket, while he partially obscured his face under a navy blue baseball cap.
When all the commotion settled, little Nahla, who is Halle's daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, was taken from the scene by the family friend.
Good guy: The new father, who welcomed son Matteo with wife Halle Berry on October 5, helped the other driver look over her car as she seemed a little concerned and flustered over the whole ordeal
No hard feelings: The A-lister was able to laugh off the incident as he reassured the blonde-haired woman with a friendly pat on the shoulder
The cutie looked sweet in brown and blue patterned pants, a black jacket and beige boots, while she wore her corkscrew curls up in a simple bun.
Halle, 47, has yet to be seen since welcoming son Matteo less than two months ago, likely waiting until she's in fighting fit form before she subjects herself to public scrutiny, much like Kim Kardashian did following the June birth of daughter North.
Safe and sound: The five-year-old youngster was escorted from the vehicle by the family friend following the scary accident, though she didn't appear to have been hurt at all
Precious cargo: The little girl, who is Halle's daughter with Gabriel Aubry, was undoubtedly Olivier's number-one priority as he was quick to ensure she was OK before dealing with the fellow driver
