Ashton Kutcher hits teen with his car, apologizes by taking photos with him

A 19-year-old Los Angeles man said he asked Ashton Kutcher for a photo after the actor hit him with his car on Sept. 19.

Ashton Kutcher accidentally hit a teen with his car on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Leo Marenghi, the 19-year-old man struck by the vehicle, told People that he was shocked when he was struck by a car as he rode a scooter through Los Angeles to pick up the children he babysits from school.

“I was picking them up from school and I was riding a scooter when Ashton was pulling out of Sunset Bronson Studios and there was a wall blocking so he couldn’t see me coming,” Marenghi said describing Kutcher’s car as a black Tesla.
