Sala won a Best Art Direction Grammy Award in 2006 for his work on Johnny Cash: The Legend box set. His personal website notes that he worked for Sony Music for nine years, and created visual campaigns for stars like Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Marc Anthony, and Billy Joel. After leaving the company, he became a full-time photographer.
Hayek -- an LA-based furniture designer -- suffered several broken ribs, and was treated at a Los Angeles hospital on Monday. The 20-year-old driver of the pickup, meanwhile, broke his left foot.
No charges have been filed from the incident.
