Santa Monica Police spokesman Sgt. Richard Lewis said the movie star was jogging in the northbound lanes of Georgina Avenue when an 84-year-old Santa Monica woman driving on 20th Street failed to slow down and hit the actress.
Lewis said "Witherspoon suffered minor injuries and was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for medical treatment." He added that the actress was at home tonight recovering.
