An octogenarian driver who hit Reese Witherspoon with her car while she was out jogging in Santa Monica, California, will have to retake her driving test.
An 84-year-old woman who hit Reese Witherspoon with her car will have to retake her driving test.
The 'Walk the Line' actress was bumped by the driver on a crosswalk in Santa Monica, California, while out jogging on Wednesday (07.09.11), and police have now ordered her to return to the Department of Motor Vehicles to retake her test.
She must take a full examination in the next 30 days, undergo a full eye examination and provide a list of any medication she is currently taking, according to TMZ.com.
Reese was hit by the octogenarian driver while she was travelling at around 20 miles an hour, and was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian on a crosswalk.
Despite the incident, Reese - who is married to Hollywood agent Jim Toth - was not seriously hurt, and her spokesperson Nanci Ryder confirmed she was "resting comfortably at home".
Earlier this year, Reese - who has two children, Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8, with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - had to wear a soft cast on her left foot after twisting her ankle.
That injury happened after her March wedding to Jim, during which she wore a pair of skyscraper heels, although she was quick to swap them for cowboy boots at her reception as they were more comfortable for her to dance in.
