Reese Witherspoon Hit By Car While Jogging

Actress Reese Witherspoon was struck by a car while jogging near Los Angeles on Wednesday morning and suffered minor injuries.

Santa Monica police Sgt. Richard Lewis says the Oscar-winning actress was hit by a car driven by an 84-year-old woman.

Witherspoon was jogging in an unmarked crosswalk in Santa Monica when the driver struck her at about 20 mph. The 35-year-old actress was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Lewis says the driver was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

Witherspoon's portrayal of June Carter in the 2005 film "Walk the Line" won her a best-actress Oscar.

    Boy, she's lucky she was in LA. If she had been jogging in eastern NC she would have been winged by a soccer Mom texting on her cell phone, then finished off by a dump truck driver eating his 3rd Bojangles sausage biscuit. Oh, then the Greenville PD would have cited her posthumously for jaywalking...

    Yet another reason someone 84 years old shouldn't be behind the wheel.

  • by The Original ENC Location: enc on Sep 8, 2011 at 07:04 AM haters: Things actually go on outside this little county of's called "the world". News stations kinda make their living reporting on stuff that goes on out there in that big ol' place that spooks you. You might want to look into it...just sayin'

      News agencies should be dedicated to reporting on things that are relevant to us. One person from HollyWeird getting hit by a car does not mean anything to the working class people. If we wanted that news, we would tune into celebrity news programs... not mainstream media.
