Carlos Santana drove into an unoccupied parked car near an upscale area of Las Vegas, but escaped injury.

The Grammy-winning superstar was heading home alone when the accident occurred on Friday night in Summerlin.

Police Lt Ken Romane told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that it's uncertain whether a sobriety field test was conducted, but Santana was not driving under the influence.

Lt Romane did not know the make of Santana's vehicle or the extent of damage to it and the parked car. Lt Romane said the accident was "minor".

According to his concert schedule, the Santana, 66, performed on Thursday and Saturday nights but not on Friday night.

Santana has won 15 Grammys and is best known for the album Supernatural, which has sold more than 25 million copies.
