Singer Nick Cave has driven his Jaguar into a speed camera and roadside barrier on Hove seafront.
The crash happened on Tuesday evening as the 53-year-old Australian musician drove his twin 10-year-old sons along Kingsway.
Cave, who lives in the area, and his sons walked away unharmed and no other vehicles were involved. Sussex Police said he was not arrested.
The crash happened at 1900 GMT on the eastbound carriageway of Kingsway.
Sussex Police said in a statement: "The camera belongs to the Sussex Safer Roads Partnership, not the police, and the railings belong to the local highway authority.
"Both agencies were informed. Nobody has been arrested but police inquiries are continuing."
A spokeswoman for Cave refused to comment.
The singer is best-known as the frontman of rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and his 1995 Where the Wild Roses Grow duet with Kylie Minogue.
