Actress Reese Witherspoon was hit by a car yesterday morning while jogging on Georgina Avenue in Santa Monica, California.

She was hit by a car driven by an 84-year old woman, but fortunately the car was only traveling at 20 mph at the time.

The legally blonde Oscar winner (Walk The Line) was reportedly crossing the street at a designated crossing zone when the driver, who failed to stop, ran into her.

Witherspoon was still rushed to a nearby hospital, with the 35-year old actress suffering from minor injuries.

The driver of the car has been cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk but later released, according to Santa Monica police.

  5. Time to cease driving, granny?
    But young drivers could also make this mistake. I knew and 88-year-old who was an excellent driver. (I'm former driver AAA instructor.)
    We could have been hit by a Mexican-appearing driver who failed stop. He probably did not know that he was required to stop.
    We always watch for such drivers when we cross.
