Reese Witherspoon has been struck by a car while jogging near Los Angeles and suffered minor injuries.

Reese was jogging in an unmarked crossing in Santa Monica when the driver struck her at about 20mph. The 35-year-old actress was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Reese's portrayal of June Carter in the 2005 film Walk the Line won her a best-actress Oscar.
