'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Star

Hit & Run Driver Wrecked My Car

10/13/2011 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charisma Carpenter
-- who played hot cheerleader Cordelia Chase in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" -- tells TMZ, she narrowly avoided serious injury this week ... after a maniac driver smashed into her car ... then fled the scene.

Charisma says the other car was speeding down an L.A. street at speeds around 60 mph ... before slamming into her car -- and 4 others.

The actress isn't sure what caused the other driver to be so reckless ... but thinks whoever was behind the wheel was "probably on something ... or running from the law."

So far, the mystery driver has not been identified, but Charisma DID catch his license plate number ... and has already been in contact with police.

Good riddance!    

Cool that she cared about other people and especially kids that could have been hurt. Empathy for others like that is becoming a rare commodity these days. She's still damn hot too!

The best part of the video was when she put a tip in the porter's pocket even after he refused it. A very classy woman.

Yeah, tipping the dude was classy. I read that at one of those scifi conventions she was the only one NOT charging for an autograph. Pretty good actress too.
