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.

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
