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.
