Reese Witherspoon
was rushed to a Santa Monica hospital around 11am this morning, after a car struck the actress while she was jogging.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, Reese's injuries were very minor -- nothing life-threatening.

According to law enforcement, the driver was an 84-year-old woman. We're told Reese was crossing the street at the time of the accident ... and the driver failed to stop.

The driver was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian and released.

Can't we just say when you hit 70 years old you lose your right to drive? Good lord. An 84 year old driving a car around is a recipe for disaster. Reese is lucky she's alive.

People claiming the 84 year old woman should not be driving, do you say that about every driver under the age of 84 that has an accident? Keep it real people!

...elderly people have to be tested yearly and receive a certificate from Doctor that their vision and cognitive abilities are safe for driving..unfortunatly most of the accidents are caused not by the elder generation..but STUPID teens, peeps in their 30's, 40's, 50's ! SMART drivers don't cause accidents...they are victims...I don't care what ur age is...glad Reese is ok...just saying..it could have been Beiber driving his hot new wheels...we don't know about the elderly driver's capabilities yet...

Not every person o****e is a bad driver...It's great that Reese is ok. We all will get old and not everyone has a perfect ending, I agree most should not drive but don't put all older people in the same boat because of one person mis jugdement....Have respect and be happy Reese is doing well, I hope the family is doing better...

If the woman was cited, she should also have to be required to take a retest. Older drivers are a Menace!
