Reese Witherspoon Not Pressing Charges After Being Hit by Car

Sources say "the incident is being treated as an accident," and the 84-year-old driver who struck the actress will not be charged

It looks like the 84-year-old who struck Reese Witherspoon with her car is driving away a free woman.

The actress sustained a minor head injury after being hit while jogging on Wednesday. But according to, Witherspoon, 35, has decided not to press charges against the elderly woman behind the wheel.

"The incident is being treated as an accident," a source tells Us. "The driver was not given an alcohol test at the accident scene and typically she would receive a fine and a point on her driving license as it is considered a moving violation."

After the incident, Witherspoon's rep told Us that the star was "not seriously injured and is resting comfortably at home."

Hopefully her handsome new hubby, Jim Toth, is on hand to give his wife a little TLC!
