Actress Reece Witherspoon Hit By A Car – But Ok !
America’s sweetheart Reece Witherspoon was hit by a car yesterday morning in Santa Monica. But according to ABC News Reece is fine.
The 35-year-old Oscar-winning actress “suffered minor injuries,” according to The Associated Press, when she was struck running across an unmarked crosswalk around 11 a.m. Wednesday.
US Weekly reported that she received a quarter-size gash on her forehead and was transported to a local hospital, where she was treated and released a short time later. She spent the night at her Brentwood home, recovering from the accident.
The driver of the car, an 84-year-old woman, was traveling at about 20 mph and was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
A witness to the accident told Us Weekly: “The driver seemed to have not seen her because of a large tree at the intersection. … Reese was lucky, because it could have been much more serious.”
