CORTEZ, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say “Revenge of the Nerds” star Robert Carradine has paid a careless driving fine stemming from a serious crash in southwestern Colorado.

Sgt. Rob Madden, a spokesman for the Colorado State Patrol, tells The Cortez Journal (https://goo.gl/QcI8yl ) the 61-year-old actor mailed a $169.50 payment after he was ticketed for crashing into a tractor-trailer on Colorado Highway 145 east of Dolores on March 5.

Investigators say Carradine drifted into the oncoming lane and crashed into the truck. The hood was ripped from his 2003 Mercury Marauder, exposing the mangled remains of its engine compartment, and its windshield was smashed in.

Carradine and his wife, Edith, were both hurt, but their injuries were not life-threatening. The truck driver was not injured.

Carradine played fraternity president Lewis Skolnick in the 1984 film “Revenge of the Nerds.”
