Juliette Lewis injured in hit-and-run crash

Police: Actress complained of pain, was taken to hospital

Police said actress Juliette Lewis has been injured in a hit-and-run crash in Burbank, the Associated Press reported.

Sgt. Sean Kelley said Lewis was a passenger in the back seat of a four-door sedan Wednesday night when a driver ran a stoplight, smashed into Lewis' vehicle and kept going.

The car was found a short distance away, but the driver had fled the scene.

Kelley said Lewis complained of pain in her head, back and neck and some bruising and was taken to a hospital.

He said the driver will be arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run when found.

Lewis, who received a supporting actress Oscar nomination for her role in the 1991 film "Cape Fear," is onscreen in the Jennifer Aniston-Jason Bateman comedy "The Switch." She next appears opposite Hilary Swank in "Conviction" and opposite Robert Downey Jr. in "Due Date."
