Los Angeles Police Department Capt. John McMahon said Schwarzenegger, 21, was not injured in the crash that occurred last week in Valley Village.
Police said it appeared the driver intentionally rammed into the younger Schwarzenegger’s car at about 11 a.m. Feb. 10 at Whitsett Avenue and Riverside Drive. It was not immediately clear what prompted the driver’s behavior.
The crash is being investigated as a felony assault with a deadly weapon, McMahon said.
The driver fled before police arrived at the scene and had not been arrested, he said.
Cyrus was not in the car at the time of the crash, the captain said.
