British pop singer James Blunt was involved in a car accident early Saturday that injured a man outside an exclusive pre-Oscar party, police say.

Police were called to the aid of the unidentified man at 1:58 a.m. outside the house of CAA agent Bryan Lourd in Los Angeles.

The “Beautiful” singer, who had been attending the Creative Artists Agency’s annual invitation-only, A-list bash, was apparently not injured. It was not clear what role he played in the accident.

“All I can do is confirm that James Blunt was involved in a traffic accident in which a man’s foot was run over,” Officer Norma Eisenman says.

Blunt’s reps didn’t return calls seeking comment.

Blunt has been making the awards season party rounds with girlfriend Petra Nemcova. On Thursday night, they celebrated his 32nd birthday at the Soho House in West Hollywood.
