Not even celebrities are free from the mishaps of negligent drivers. Reese Witherspoon, famous for such movies as Walk the Line and Sweet Home Alabama, went for a jog in Santa Monica, California and returned with minor injuries. According to People, as the actress jogged through an unmarked crosswalk, an 84-year-old driver hit Witherspoon.
The actress did not sustain any serious injuries from the car accident, and a representative for Witherspoon stated that she rested comfortably at home following the accident. The driver of the vehicle received a citation for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
In the film industry, actors are almost required to stay in shape. However, exercise is not worth your life. All pedestrians must remember to carefully look both ways before entering any crosswalk, marked or unmarked, and make sure that you are easily visible to drivers. In addition, it is always a good idea to have the volume of your headphones down so that you can hear cars more easily.
