Reese Witherspoon accident hits by car

Reese Witherspoon accident hits by car - The Oscar winning actress was in Santa Monica, near Los Angeles, when the vehicle struck her while travelling at around 20 miles per hour, and she was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The actress was jogging within an unmarked crosswalk at the time she was hit and suffered minor injuries. She was later transported by an ambulance to a local hospital and released. 

Witherspoon's spokesperson said in a statement the actress "was not seriously injured and is resting comfortably at home." The driver of the car was given a citation for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The 'Walk the Line' star's spokesperson, Nanci Ryder, told E! News she was not seriously hurt in the accident and is now "resting comfortably at home". Earlier this year, Reese - who has two children, Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8, with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - had to wear a soft cast on her left foot after badly twisting her ankle. Thankfully that injury happened after her March wedding to Hollywood agent Jim Toth, during which she wore a pair of skyscraper heels, although she was quick to swap them for cowboy boots at her reception as they were more comfortable for her to dance in.

In March, the actress, 35, married entertainment agent Jim Toth, 40, in a private ceremony at her ranch estate in Ojai, California. The couple became engaged in December after dating for about a year. This marks the second marriage for the actress, who was married to Phillippe, 36, between 1999 and 2008. She has two children from her first marriage, daughter Ava, 11 and son Deacon, 7.

Witherspoon and Toth were first linked together in January, not long after she and actor Jake Gyllenhaal confirmed they had broken up after dating for about three years. Witherspoon and Toth fended off engagement rumors in October. Witherspoon is known for movies such as "Legally Blonde" and won an Oscar for the 2005 film "Walk the Line." She recently appeared in "Water for Elephants" with "Twilight" actor Robert Pattinson and filmed "This Means War" with Chris Pine and E! talk show host Chelsea Handler.
