Actress Juliette Lewis was briefly hospitalized in Southern California Wednesday night, the victim of a hit-and-run driver who struck her chauffeured Lincoln Town car, according to reports.
The 37-year-old “Cape Fear” and “Natural Born Killers” star was on her way home from a promotional event in Burbank for her new film “Conviction” when a Honda struck her car at an intersection, E! Online reported.
“The Sedan Juliette was traveling in was completely totaled,” her rep told Usmagazine.com. “Ms Lewis went to the hospital to be checked out and is a bit banged up and sore, but otherwise thankfully okay. She is now resting at home.”
Police later recovered the abandoned Honda a few blocks from the accident, according to E!
