Amanda Bynes runs into more car trouble

Amanda Bynes was reportedly involved in another car accident on Friday.

The Easy A actress was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of driving under the influence after she side-swiped a police car.

This time, the 26-year-old star allegedly hit a pick-up truck in her Black Range Rover and continued driving afterwards - prompting the other driver to alert the police.

"At 4.25 pm, we were notified of a possible hit-and-run," Los Angeles Police Department Sergeant Ben Zucker told People. "The caller followed Miss Bynes for a short distance to a gas station."

Officers arrived on the scene in Hollywood and caught up with Amanda.

According to TMZ, the actress told police she didn't realise she had made contact with the truck. The only damage caused was a minor paint rub to the right front fender.

"It turned out the damage to the pick-up truck was so minor that it was very plausible she had no idea that she hit anyone. Because of that, we decided not to charge her with hit and run, took a traffic report instead and sent her on her way," Zucker added. "There were no arrests made and no one was injured."

Amanda first ran into trouble over her driving skills on April 6.

After being stopped by police she reportedly denied an officer's request for her to take a breathalyser test and is expected to face penalties for her turndown.

Amanda's first court date will be in Beverly Hills at the beginning of June.
