Meghan Trainor’s Father Struck by Vehicle in Apparent Hit-and-Run



11:42 AM PT — 2/23 Meghan gave her fans an update Sunday, saying, “I’m with my dad now. Thank you for all your sweet messages. It was all very scary but he is the strongest man I know.”

4:26 PM PT — Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the motorist who struck Meghan Trainor’s dad, Gary, did not flee the scene — they stuck around and talked to cops afterward. We’re told she explained to police that Gary was wearing very dark clothes and that she couldn’t see him before it was too late.

Our sources say no crime was committed here — it appears the incident is being viewed and dealt with as an accident.

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Meghan Trainor ‘s father has been hospitalized after being struck by a vehicle in what appears to be a hit-and-run — but, fortunately, it looks like he’ll be okay.

Sources close to the family tell TMZ … Gary Trainor was transported to an area hospital in Los Angeles Friday night, after we’re told he was hit by a car. The accident took place as Gary was crossing a busy street by foot, near the San Fernando Valley — he was admitted to a nearby emergency room.

We’re told he’s currently listed as being in stable condition, so it sounds like he’ll recover from his injuries. No official word on the whereabouts or description of the driver — we’ve got a call into law enforcement to see if they’re looking into it.

Meghan and her dad are super-tight — he mentored her to become the star she is today, and even showed her the ropes of the music game. The guy’s a known piano player himself, and reportedly contributed to one of Meghan’s earlier EPs … being featured on two tracks.

One song he apparently produced was her song “Cupid.” Another song he helped out on for that same “Only 17” record was called “Tumble.” He’s credited with helping launch her career, and has appeared at multiple awards shows and other public events with his kid.

Just as recently as last month, Gary and Meghan were together — on TV, no less — when Gary made a surprise guest appearance on ‘The Voice UK,’ for which Meghan serves as a judge.

Gary’s currently at least 70 years old, according to online records.

LOS ANGELES (Los Angeles Times) — Advocates staging a “die-in” on the steps of L.A. City Hall in December to protest a lack of progress on the city’s goal of eliminating traffic deaths on city streets by 2025.

The data may change slightly with additional analysis, officials said. But the early figures suggest another year […]
