      Actress Reese Witherspoon hit by car during jog

      SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - Actress Reese Witherspoon was struck by a car while jogging near Los Angeles on Wednesday morning and suffered minor injuries.

      Santa Monica police Sgt. Richard Lewis says the Oscar-winning actress was hit by a car driven by an 84-year-old woman.

      Witherspoon was jogging in an unmarked crosswalk in Santa Monica when the driver struck her at about 20 mph. The 35-year-old actress was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

      Lewis says the driver was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

      Witherspoon's portrayal of June Carter in the 2005 film "Walk the Line" won her a best-actress Oscar.
