One of Hollywood’s weirdest yet most lovable actresses, Juliette Lewis, was involved in a hit-and-run car crash in Burbank, CA last night. The actress was briefly hospitalized last night after she was “broadsided” by an unknown driver, who fled the scene.
He must not have been aware of who he hit!
Lewis was not actually driving the car at the time of the collision — she was living the high life being chauffeured in a Lincoln Town Car home from an event for her new movie Conviction, also starring Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell.
‘The sedan Juliette was traveling in was completely totaled,’ says her rep Carleen Donovan. ‘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.’ (via CNN.com).
Apparently the other car doing the damage was a Honda — one that was found a few blocks away sans driver. He is still at large and probably only finding out now that he was the dude that hit Juliette Lewis.
