Juliette Lewis was lucky to escape a hit-and-run crash in California with minor injuries, according to police. The Cape Fear actress and singer was in the back of her car when a driver went through a red light and smashed into the vehicle. The damage caused was enough to see the car written off.
Lewis has since been discharged from hospital following complaints of pain in her head, back and neck.
Her spokesman described Lewis as being a “bit banged-up and sore, but otherwise thankfully OK”.
Police are still searching for the other driver.
Lewis was on her way home after promoting her forthcoming movie Conviction at an event.
