Shia LaBeouf may not have been at fault in a crash that flipped his truck early Sunday morning in West Hollywood, according to authorities.

"It appears he was not at fault," Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Tuesday. "We have strong evidence that the other driver ran a red light."

After the accident, LaBeouf, 22, was booked on suspicion of DUI at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where he received extensive surgery on injuries to his left hand.

"He was showing obvious signs of intoxication from the smell of alcohol coming from his breath," Sgt. Scott Wolf told PEOPLE.

In the car with LaBeouf was his Transformers 2 costar Isabel Lucas, 23, who, in addition to the other driver, did not sustain serious injuries.

Earlier that evening, the Indiana Jones star was seen drinking at a West Hollywood music venue.

LaBeouf has yet to be formally charged with any crime.
