Reese Witherspoon Okay After Car On Jogger Collision
Iíve never been hit by a car while jogging, partially because I have the reflexes of a cat and partially because I desperately try to avoid exercise. Unfortunately, Reese Witherspoon can claim neither my lightning first step nor my laziness. The Academy Award winning actress was out for a run earlier today when she was struck by a passing vehicle. As a precautionary measure, she was taken to a local hospital, but without any serious injuries, she was released shortly afterwards.
News of the car on person collision spread rapidly on the internet, prompting Witherspoonís publicist to release a statement clarifying that the actress was okay. According to Reuters, the incident took place in Santa Monica, but beyond that, details are still very fuzzy.
Let me go ahead and fill in the specifics using common sense. Seeing as how she attained no injuries, itís likely Witherspoon was running across the street when a motorist waiting at a stop sign either went without looking or decided to be a douche and prove a point. Either way, his or her vehicle made contact going less than five miles an hour, knocking Reese to the ground. She got up, decided not to be a hero and went to the hospital to verify her organs werenít secretly bleeding.
If you want a message to take away from this story, itís donít bother trying to stay in shape. A nice figure might land you acting roles and a handsome husband, but it wonít prevent non-life-threatening injuries.
