Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon was hit by a car yesterday morning in Santa Monica while she was out for a jog. The driver of the vehicle was an 84-year-old woman.

Witherspoon suffered minor injuries in the accident and was treated at a local hospital, but don't worry--America's Sweetheart is going to be okay!

The driver was cited for not yielding to a pedestrian using a crosswalk.

Fear not: There's already a curated listing of select Twitter well-wishes for the 35-year-old actress, as well as some jokes about old lady drivers.
