A car driven by actor-turned-producer Shaun Cassidy was involved in a crash in which a security guard for the Warner Bros. studio suffered a minor leg injury, police said Friday.

Cassidy was driving into the studio at about 10 a.m. Thursday when his car struck a vehicle that was stopped at the security gate, police Lt. William Berry said in a statement. The stopped car was pushed into a third vehicle and guard Conrad Perez was trapped between the two vehicles, police said.

Cassidy was not cited.

Initial reports were that Perez suffered a hairline fracture to his left leg, but police Lt. Bill Taylor said Friday that it turned out to be a “major contusion.” Perez was treated at a hospital and released.

“He walked out of the hospital under his own power,” Taylor said.

Cassidy was a 1970s pop singer and teen idol who co-starred in the TV series “The Hardy Boys Mysteries.” He went on to stage acting and then became a writer and producer for several TV shows, including “American Gothic,” “The Agency” and “Cold Case.”

He is the half brother of David Cassidy, the singer-actor-producer and former child star of the 1970s TV show “The Partridge Family.”
