TOKYO - Carlos Ghosn, the chief executive of Nissan Motor Co., was involved in a minor accident on Sunday when the Porsche he was test-driving was in a collision with a motorcycle as he was making a turn.
The two people on the motorcycle were only slightly injured, and Ghosn was unhurt, a spokesman at Japan's third-biggest automaker said.
"It's not uncommon for executives to test-drive competitors' cars on weekends to evaluate them," he said, adding the Porsche belonged to Nissan.
Medical and repair costs will be covered by insurance, and Ghosn will not have to return to the police.
Tokyo police said the incident, which occurred in Akasaka, central Tokyo, on Sunday morning was being treated as an accident involving only property damage.
