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.

  1. yearly licence renewal after 75? degrading maybe. lifesaving yes.

  2. sounds good to me but the elders wont like it....i think a test every yr would be prudent...........

  3. Reese is another Hollywood airhead. Her loss would never be noticed.

  4. it is a good idea to look before you run into a star or not

  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.
