- Tessa Thompson got into a car accident while driving up to a cabin on New Year’s Eve.
- Tessa is fine, but she said the car that collided with her was as big as a monster truck. 😬
2020 was a mess for obvious reasons, but for Tessa Thompson, the year capped off with the very thing that many drivers license-holding people dread every time they step foot into their vehicle—a car accident. Tessa had a collision with a “big monster truck” on the final day of the year, and thankfully, she is alive and well enough for her to happily tell the tale during her recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
“I have been staying in, although for New Year’s Eve I was like, ‘What could be safe? I could drive from my house to one other house,'” she recalled, thinking that this solo activity would be safe as can be. “So I drove up a mountain to go to a cabin. And I thought, ‘This will be totally safe, ’cause I won’t see anybody. But I got into a car accident, so I did have a socially distanced interaction.”
FYI, it wasn’t just any car that Tessa got into a scrap with—according to her, the car was “as monster as a truck could be driving with a regular commercial license,” she said. “Yeah, I got hit. But I’m safe, obviously.”

Though getting into an accident is always a scary experience, Tessa said that the other driver “was very lovely in the end,” and added that neither of them sustained any injuries. “I feel like I’m used to car accidents because I was born and raised in Los Angeles, so it feels like accidents are my birthright. I’ve had many of them. But this was a pleasant one,” she said. “I think after this year, there’s such gratitude at being alive. It was sort of the sweetest, loveliest accident of all the ones I’ve had, in a way.”
“Also, it made total sense,” she added. “It’s the only way to end this year  would be to get into a car accident.” Too true, Tessa…too true.
