The Old Lady’s Off Scot-Free[Gallery not found]
Bitch didn’t even get a Breathalyzer. E! Online says:
According to a report, Reese Witherspoon has no plans to press charges against the elderly driver who hit her with her car Wednesday while the Oscar-winning actress was out jogging in Santa Monica, sending her to the hospital with minor injuries. So what is going to happen to the driver? Even though the 84-year-old driver broke the law by failing to yield to Witherspoon as she was running within an unmarked crosswalk, causing the accident, a source told Us Weekly that the 35-year-old actress opted not to take the woman to court. The thesp luckily sustained only a minor cut to her forehead, and shortly following the incident her publicist told E! News that Witherspoon was “resting comfortably at home” after receiving treatment. Her rep was unavailable for comment on the latest report. E! News has learned, meanwhile, that the unidentified driver was ticketed with a moving violation and has been ordered to return to the DMV to retake her driver’s test. Sgt. Richard Lewis of the Santa Monica Police Department said officers on the scene issued the woman a driver’s reevaluation form, which means she needs to take a full examination within 30 days. The spokesman added that it’s up to the DMV ultimately whether to require her to take an eye exam or provide a list of medications.
To be clear, the driver was a woman, which means she was driving poorly, but she was also 84, which means she was driving slowly (reports estimate 20 mph), so Reese got lucky. I never understood why senior citizens drive slow, because they don’t have much time. If this driver planned ahead, Reese Witherspoon would have a much cuter chin today.
