Hayden Panettiere

Car Crash

Accused of Blowing Red Light

12/1/2012 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1130-hayden-panettiere-tmzHayden Panettiere was involved in a BMW vs. Geo Prism car crash in Tennessee earlier this month ... TMZ has learned ... and a witness told cops it all could have been prevented if Hayden hadn't run a red light.

The crash occurred on November 14th in Nashville -- where Hayden films her show "Nashville" -- and according to the crash report, the accident occurred for two reasons ... 1) Hayden ran a red light ... and 2) the other driver turned into Hayden's lane.

According to the report, Hayden was driving in the right lane through an intersection when the other driver made a left turn into her lane -- instead of into the left lane.

A witness reported Hayden had a red light at the time of the accident.

According to the report, both vehicles were towed from the scene -- but thankfully, no one was seriously hurt. Calls to Hayden's people were not returned.

FUN FACT: Hayden uses State Farm insurance ... like a good neighbor ...

Why is she driving when she can't even see over the dash board?

She's one of the nastiest wanta be divas in Hollywood, and I'm sure she is doing everything in her power to end up like Lohan, which is at the bottom of the trash heap.

So wait, her running a red light forced the other driver to turn into her lane instead of the proper lane? The only way that would make sense is if she was driving in the incorrect lane.

I am the mother of the one that she hit. My son did not enter her lane, there is no way to do this when she had a red light across from him and he got a green arrow light and started to turn and she just hit him. She needs to take care of it and get him back on the road. She would expect nothing less of him.

Nashville star Hayden Panettiere was involved with an accident, apparently caused by her bad conduct as well as the other driver’s. Hayden allegedly ran a red light and the other driver drove into Hayden’s lane rather than the appropriate lane. Both drivers were unhurt. Usually, drivers involved in accidents in Virginia are charged under one of the Commonwealth’s many reckless driving statutes. However, based on facts presented, attorneys are often able to negotiate less harmful outcomes for client’s driving records.

It is totally her fault even though they both did something wrong. I know she has her own people but it would have been nice if she had hired a car accident attorney in Nashville. The publicity would have been good for the city. Thanks for sharing!
