Juliette Lewis has been injured in a hit-and-run crash in California, police said.
Sgt Sean Kelley said the actress was a passenger in the back seat of a four-door sedan on Wednesday night when a driver ran a stoplight, smashed into her vehicle and kept going.
The car was found a short distance away, but the driver had fled the scene in Burbank.
Sgt Kelley said Juliette complained of pain in her head, back and neck and some bruising. She was taken to a hospital for evaluation but her injuries were not serious, Kelley said.
He said the driver will be arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run when found.
The 37-year-old received a best supporting actress Oscar nomination for her role in the 1991 film Cape Fear.
She appears in the soon-to-be released film Conviction.
