Rupert Grint

Rupert Grint cheated death in his teenage years when he was caught up in a terrifying car crash.

Grint, 25, was on a trip from Brighton, England to London when the driver of his vehicle dozed off at the wheel and smashed into a road barrier at high speed.

Grint, who won his role in the Harry Potter franchise at the age of 11, tells British magazine Event, "A friend was giving me a lift from Brighton to London in his Mini.

"He fell asleep at the wheel and veered into the central reservation in the fast lane".

It is not known if the actor suffered any injuries in the crash.
