After sustaining minor injuries, Reese Witherspoon is reportedly at home right now recovering from getting hit by a car Sept. 7. Can you believe it?
The 35-year-old actress was taken immediately to the hospital, treated for minor injuries and then released to recover at her home. Thankfully, the accident was reportedly not a hit-and-run. We’re glad the driver took responsibility!
Sergeant Richard Lewis of the Santa Monica Police Department told HollywoodLife.com about the accident:
“On Sept. 7, 2011 at 11:14 a.m., officers from the Santa Monica Police Department responded to the area of 20th Street and Georgina Avenue regarding a traffic collision involving a motor vehicle and a female pedestrian who was jogging. The initial investigation revealed that the driver of the vehicle, an 84-year-old female resident of Santa Monica, was travelling southbound on 20th Street and struck a female pedestrian that was jogging westbound on Georgina Avenue at 20th Street within an unmarked crosswalk. The pedestrian was subsequently identified as Reese Witherspoon. Witherspoon suffered minor injuries and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for medical treatment. The driver of the vehicle was interviewed at the location and released after being cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.”
Our thoughts and well-wishes go out to Reese, her husband and her kids right now. We’re so thankful she’s okay!
