robert-horry-crashRetired NBA player Robert Horry wasn’t hurt after a car he was driving hit a motorcycle on a Los Angeles freeway and left the rider hospitalized, AP reported.

The California Highway Patrol said Wednesday that Horry’s 2014 Infiniti collided with a 2013 Yamaha motorcycle driven by Xerxes Baldonasa of Long Beach on Tuesday afternoon on the 105 Freeway near Inglewood.

According to the CHP, the 44-year-old Baldonasa was treated for moderate injuries at a hospital. The 43-year-old Horry wasn’t hurt. Neither man was arrested.

The CHP says Baldonasa was riding between two sets of double yellow lines that separate the car pool lane from other lanes. Horry was attempting to change from the left lane into the car pool lane, and crossed over the double yellow lines, which caused him to hit the motorcycle.

The accident remains under investigation.

The Houston Rockets selected Horry out of Alabama with the 11th overall pick in the 1992 draft. Throughout his career, Horry played for the Rockets, Phoenix Suns, LA Lakers and San Antonio Spurs.

Horry won 7 NBA titles: Two with Houston Rockets (93,94), three with LA Lakers (2000,2001,2002), and two more with San Antonio Spurs (2005,2007).

In total, Horry played in 1107 NBA games (481 started), averaging 7 ppg, 4.8 rpg in 24.5 minutes of playing time.
