Emmylou Harris

Investigated

For Hit and Run

EXCLUSIVE

1228_emmylou_harris_car_article_gettyEmmylou Harris is now in the crosshairs of the L.A. County District Attorney for allegedly hitting a car on an L.A. Freeway and then hightailing it out of there ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the alleged incident occurred on October 1 at around 10:00 PM.  They say Emmylou was driving a rental car on the 405 Freeway when she struck a car and took off without stopping or exchanging info.

We're told the CHP opened a hit and run investigation after the other driver filed a report.  The investigation is now complete and we're told the file was sent to the D.A., who will decide if the country legend should be prosecuted.

Emmylou's rep acknowledges to TMZ she was involved in a "minor traffic accident," adding "she unintentionally rubbed bumpers with another vehicle." The rep says Emmylou didn't realize the cars made contact so she took off.

The rep calls it a "garden-variety accident that happens everyday on the 405," and Emmylou has turned the matter over to her insurance company.

FYI -- It's a crime to leave the scene of an accident that causes injury or property damage without stopping and exchanging info.

She actually pays a rep to say she was involved in a minor traffic accident, but didn't realize the cars hit, so she drove away? Sign me up to be a rep--I'm sure I could come up with something better than this.
