GLOUCESTER, Mass. (AP) – Actress Sandra Bullock and her husband were unhurt after a head-on crash with a suspected drunk driver in this famed fishing port.

Bullock and husband Jesse James were being driven in a Chevy SUV at about 9:50 p.m. Friday when a Subaru wagon driven by Lucille Gatchell crossed the center line and hit them, according Gloucester police Lt. Jerry Cook.

Both vehicles were totaled but no one was hurt. The vehicles were traveling about 15-20 miles per hour before the crash, Cook said.

After the crash Bullock hugged James, known for his role in the television show Monster Garage, while passersby snapped pictures of the scene with camera phones, Cook said.

Bullock, 43, was “gracious,” and concerned that Gatchell was OK, Cook said.

Gatchell, 64, of Gloucester tested .20 on an alcohol breath test, more than twice the legal limit of .08, Cook said. She was held by Gloucester police overnight and released Saturday on personal recognizance. Gatchell, who has no previous record, will be arraigned Tuesday in Gloucester District Court.

Gatchell at first had no idea who she hit, then reacted with disbelief when she found out her first alleged drunk driving offense involved someone famous, Cook said.

Gatchell did not immediately return a call for comment Saturday.

Bullock, known for her roles in hits such as “Speed” and “Miss Congeniality,” is in the Cape Ann area filming the romantic comedy, “The Proposal.”
