On September 30, 2023, Pete Davidson was involved in another car crash, this time in Los Angeles. Exiting his stand-up comedy show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, California, the 29-year-old celebrity purportedly collided the side of his vehicle into a wall. Page Six, which acquired images of the accident, reported that the King of Staten Island star was operating the GMC SUV with four additional passengers. Fortunately, no injuries were reported from the event.

A bystander recounted observing him scrape the side of his car while departing the venue at approximately 10 p.m. The images captured revealed several noticeable scratch marks along the rear door of the black vehicle.

The incident has raised concerns about Davidson’s driving habits and whether or not he is receiving any mental health support at the moment. This is the second time in less than a year that he has been involved in a car crash. 

Davidson’s reckless driving is a serious matter, especially given his celebrity status. He has a history of multiple mental health issues for which he sought rehab on more than one occasion. He had an eventful early years of life with a diagnosis of Crohn’s disease at 17 years of age, only to be followed by bipolar personality disorder (BPD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He had significant ups and downs in his personal life, particularly his dating partners and the recent round of relationship with Kim Kardashian followed by his skirmish with Kanye West is an added stressor to his already vulnerable mental state.

Given the substantial mental health issues, it is pertinent to mention that he is susceptible to events like the recent car crash and his fans and followers are definitely concerned about his current mental health condition.

In March 2023, Pete Davidson experienced a car accident in Beverly Hills, California. He was at the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon when the vehicle veered off the road, striking a fire hydrant, and ultimately crashing into a residential property. Fortunately, both Davidson and his passenger, actress Chase Sui Wonders, emerged from the incident unscathed, although the collision resulted in substantial damage to the house.

The Beverly Hills Police Department conducted a thorough inquiry into the accident and concluded that Davidson had been carelessly operating the vehicle.

Comedian Pete Davidson achieved a significant legal victory as the court granted him a non-custodial sentence in his reckless driving case. Sources reveal that Davidson’s legal representatives clandestinely negotiated with the prosecutors and the judge at the Los Angeles courthouse on July 19, 2023, resulting in an agreement for a “diversion” in the case.

Confirming the developments, CNN reported that a Los Angeles County Superior judge mandated actor Pete Davidson to undergo an 18-month diversion program following his charges of reckless driving linked to a recent car accident in Beverly Hills.

Davidson has been open about his mental health struggles, which include borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and Crohn’s disease. He has spoken about how his mental health issues have affected his life and relationships, and how he has learned to manage them.
Davidson was first diagnosed with BPD when he was 18 years old. BPD is a mental health disorder that is characterized by mood swings, impulsive behavior, and unstable relationships. Davidson has said that his BPD has made it difficult for him to maintain relationships and that it has also led to impulsive behavior such as substance abuse and self-harm.


In addition to BPD, Davidson also has Crohn’s disease, an inflammatory bowel disease. Crohn’s disease can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, and fatigue. Davidson has said that his Crohn’s disease has made it difficult for him to perform on stage and that it has also led to social anxiety.


In recent months, Davidson has been under a lot of public scrutiny due to his relationship with Kim Kardashian. He has also been the target of online harassment from Kanye West, Kardashian’s ex-husband.
Despite his mental health struggles, Davidson has achieved a successful career as a comedian and actor. He has been on Saturday Night Live since 2014, and he has also starred in films such as The King of Staten Island and Suicide Squad. Davidson has said that his work has helped him to cope with his mental health issues and that it has also given him a platform to raise awareness about mental health.
Davidson’s openness about his mental health struggles has helped to break down the stigma associated with mental illness. He has shown that it is possible to live a successful life with mental health issues, and he has inspired others to seek help for their mental health struggles.

It is impossible to say for sure whether Davidson’s mental health issues played a role in his car crash. However, it is worth noting that reckless driving can be a symptom of mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

In the days leading up to the car crash, Davidson was under a lot of stress. He was in a high-profile relationship with Kim Kardashian, and he was also dealing with public scrutiny of his mental health issues. This stress might have contributed to the crash.

In addition, Davidson has a history of impulsive behavior. In 2018, he posted a suicidal message on Instagram, which led to a police wellness check. He might have made an impulsive decision to get behind the wheel of a car, even though he may not have been in the best condition to drive.

Ultimately, it is up to the authorities to determine whether or not Davidson’s mental health issues played a role in the car crash. However, it is important to note that mental health issues can affect people’s ability to make good decisions and to drive safely.

Here are some ways that mental health issues can affect driving:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Poor decision-making
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

If you are struggling with your mental health, it is important to talk to your doctor or a mental health professional. They can help you to develop coping mechanisms and to make sure that you are safe to drive.

In June 2023, Davidson entered rehab to address his mental health issues. A source told Elle that Davidson was “manic” and “wasn’t sleeping well or taking good care of himself.”

Davidson reportedly spent several weeks in rehab, where he received treatment for borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and anxiety. He was also treated for addiction, although it is unclear what substance he was addicted to.

Davidson has not spoken publicly about his rehab stay, but he has been seen out and about in New York City in recent weeks. Before his recent car crash, he looked healthy and happy and seemed to be doing well.

It is unclear whether Davidson is still attending therapy or taking medication, but he is likely receiving treatment for his mental health issues.
