Police were seeking comedian Sam Kinison Wednesday for questioning in connection with a sports car found abandoned after it crashed on a winding Mount Olympus street. The black 1986 Chevrolet Corvette, bearing the personalized license plate EX REV, was discovered smashed into a power pole off Nichols Canyon Road at Astral Drive, said Los Angeles police officer S.B. Jaramillo of the West Traffic Division. The Corvette apparently had been leased to the controversial stand-up comedian and former Pentecostal minister, police determined. Police confiscated the abandoned Corvette for their follow-up investigation.
