LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police say actor LeVar Burton was involved in a five-car accident but wasn't seriously injured.

Detective Judy Acosta says Burton's 2006 Mercedes was on Beverly Boulevard in West Los Angeles at about 7:40 p.m. Monday when a 74-year-old woman in a 2006 Scion turned left in front of him.

Acosta says the cars collided. Burton's vehicle then hit a parked car, leading to a chain reaction that damaged two other parked cars.

Acosta says both drivers complained of pain, then were examined at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and released. Nobody was ticketed.

Burton, 52, was in the TV miniseries "Roots," "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and was the longtime host of "Reading Rainbow."
