Reese Witherspoon is hit by a car while jogging




Reese Witherspoon had to be treated by paramedics after being hit by a car while jogging in Santa Monica on Wednesday morning. Us makes it sound like she was practically taken in for brain surgery, but she did suffer a quarter-sized cut on her forehead.

The 35-year-old actress "suffered minor injuries" after she was hit at what they describe as an unmarked crosswalk by an 84-year-old local woman, who was cited for failure to yield. She was going about 20 mph at the time. The drive, not Reese, although that would be impressive.

"The driver seemed to have not seen her because of a large tree at the intersection ... (Reese) was lucky, because it could have been much more serious," a witness told the mag. After hearing a Q-Tip ran down Reese while she was jogging, The Juice* had to do a double-take to make sure she wasn't in Florida for the week.
