Country music star Emmylou Harris has been charged by prosecutors in Los Angeles over a hit-and-run accident last year.

The Grammy-winning singer is accused of failing to exchange information with a driver whose car she hit on a freeway on October 1.

A criminal complaint filed in Beverly Hills did not contain additional details about the accident or how much damage occurred.

A publicist for the 65-year-old singer did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Emmylou has won a dozen Grammys for her solo work and collaborations with artists such as Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Alison Krauss and others.

She continues to tour and is due to release an album of duets in late February.

Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
