A Californian teenager says Ashton Kutcher accidentally hit him with his car before agreeing to pose for an Instagram photo with him this week.

"Got hit by a car today... but it's okay because it was by Ashton Kutcher," 19-year-old Leo Marenghi captioned a photo of the pair.

Marenghi told TIME magazine he was on his scooter when Kutcher's Tesla collided with him, knocking him to the ground.

"I got up, and he was getting out of the car at the same time," he said.

"[Kutcher] was like, 'Oh my God, I'm so sorry, are you OK?'"

The teen replied that he was "fine", before taking the opportunity to get a snap for the 'gram alongside the Hollywood star.

Marenghi initially appeared unharmed, save for a few cuts and scrapes captured by TMZ cameras. He told People magazine he later felt "worse", but didn't blame the Dude, Where's My Car? star for the incident.

"I don't intend to go after him [legally]," he said.

"I feel like it was kind of my fault because I was on a scooter and it was hard to see me. I just feel like that would be trashy."

Kutcher has not yet officially addressed the incident, but Marenghi described it as "a really cool experience".
