Just days after returning from a fishing trip which his sons, Mel Gibson walked away from a car crash in Malibu, California.  The trip with his sons was conveniently scheduled at the same time Mel was set to give a deposition in his child custody case with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Gibson was driving alone in his 2008 Maserati Sunday evening when he crashed into a rocky hillside.  He was uninjured in the crash.

“Mr. Gibson supplied all the pertinent information to the officers at the scene, gave a statement and received a ride home from a friend,” the Highway Patrol spokesperson tells US Weekly. “His vehicle was towed from the scene.  Driving under the influence is not suspected in this accident.”

Gibson is currently in the midst of an ugly custody battle with his ex-girlfriend over their 9-month-old daughter Lucia.
