If you have to get in a car accident, get in an accident with Clayton Kershaw. After Tiffany Lynn Cole and her friend Jenni rear-ended the Dodgers' star pitcher, he hung out and posed for selfies with them. Kershaw was fine aside from "a bump on his head," according to Cole's Facebook page. "He honestly was such a nice guy," writes Cole, although he did tell Jenni—who unfortunately happened to be clad in Angels apparel—"that she was wearing an ugly shirt! 😂." Cole reports that she, Jenni, and Kershaw spent roughly two hours waiting on the side of the road, and that they were ultimately dropped off by the Arizona Highway Patrol.

In an oddly plaintive exchange that reads like the last line in a New Yorker short story, Cole reports that she told Kershaw "I just like to drink and watch baseball 😊 he laughed [and] said that [is] my favorite too, but I don't get to do that anymore." Success always comes at a price.

The Dodgers PR department told LAist that they had no comment at this time when asked if Clayton Kershaw was always such a nice guy.
