Reese Witherspoon may be hot enough to stop a train dead in its tracks, but apparently her powers don’t work on elderly drivers. Witherspoon was struck by a car on Wednesday morning while out jogging in Santa Monica, sustaining only minor injuries. The driver, an 84-year-old woman, received a traffic citation for failing to yield to Witherspoon at a pedestrian crosswalk. Witherspoon is doing just fine and will continue to grace us with her brilliant smile and gorgeous blue eyes, which can be admired on the following pages. Enjoy.
