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.

And that is why people who are 65 and older need to take a drivers test once a year. People who are 80 and above need to have their license taken away. To many people have been getting hit by them. Hope Reese is okay and makes a speedy recovery

Hope she's OK, but maybe she should watch out for cars when she crosses the street.

The info below is from Statistical Abstract of the United States: http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab

"26,788,000 drivers, 16-24, were involved in 4,700,000 accidents, 13,800 of which were fatal.

30,567,000 drivers, 65+, were involved in 1,340,000 accidents, 8,100 of which were fatal."

I think it boils down to this -- young people drive as if they are immortal while old people drive as if death is around the next corner.

84? So the car was going 7 mph with a turn signal blinking at the time of "accident"?
