'General Hospital' Star Arrested Following Intense Car Crash
General Hospital's Haley Pullos, who plays Molly Lansing-Davis on the popular soap opera, has reportedly been arrested for driving under the influence.
The actress recently announced she was stepping back from the show to recover following a car accident, telling Soap Opera Digest, "Unfortunately, I was involved in an automobile accident and I’m doing okay, but I am going to need a little time to recover. I will be back as soon as possible!”
However, according to a police report obtained by TMZ, the actress caused the accident when she swerved across the median on the freeway in Pasadena, Calif. entering a lane of opposing traffic and hitting another car in a head-on collision at an estimated 60 miles per hour.
In photos from the Pasadena Fire Department, obtained by the publication, two white vehicles are seen with both of their front ends smashed in, both assumed to be totaled due to the damage.

According to authorities, the 24-year-old was trapped inside the vehicle, requiring the help of firefighters to free her. While emergency medical responders were trying to evaluate her—which often involves the removal of clothing in accidents this severe to complete a trauma assessment—she reportedly hit one of them and shouted, "This is a $400 f-----g shirt!"
Pullos was reportedly clearly under the influence, with the smell of alcohol on her breath, slurred speech, and watery eyes. In her car, officers found marijuana edibles and small bottles of tequila.
She was placed under arrest for DUI at the hospital, where officers say she became more aggressive, fighting with hospital staff, which led to her being sedated.
According to the publication, the driver of the other car was significantly injured but did survive. Pullos reportedly struck another vehicle in a hit-and-run accident prior to the freeway crash, though no further details have been released about that incident.
