According to law enforcement sources, the "Desperate Housewives" hottie was driving on busy Hollywood Blvd when someone suddenly turned in front of her. Eva was unable to avoid the car and collided with it.
We're told both Eva and the other driver had very minor injuries -- no one went to the hospital -- and the accident is under investigation ... however the early indication is Eva won't be on the hook for the damage.
Eva's restaurant, Beso, isn't far from where the accident happened. Calls to her rep were not immediately returned.
