Last week we learned the sad news that Reese Witherspoon was struck by a car driven by an 84-year old woman who failed to yield in the crosswalk while Reese was jogging. Today we get to see photos of Reese out in public for the first time since her accident … and she is sporting some pretty ouchy injuries. Altho Reese was happily laughing with a friend this week, the dark bruising on her face shows just how hurt she was in last week’s accident.
Reese Witherspoon is still bearing the scars from a run-in with a car last week — sporting a big black eye … 6 days after she was run over by an 84-year-old woman. Reese was out in L.A. yesterday, smiling on her way to a birthday party — despite the big band-aid on her forehead. A different photo that we quickly learned had been taken BEFORE the accident had made the rounds last week showing Reese looking fine … but the fact is, that photo was taken before Reese was hit by a car in Santa Monica. As TMZ previously reported, Reese was hospitalized after the accident on Wednesday, but she was soon released after doctors determined her injuries were only minor.
Dang … poor Reese. I had assumed that her injuries were relegated to her hands and/or knees. I don’t even want to know how she managed to get this much bruising on her face. She looks like she got punched … by a car :( Again, I say, Reese is a good sport for not taking action against the woman who drove into her. Here’s hoping her injuries will heal … soon.
