Shaken by the crash
Footage of the collision obtained by TMZ shows a white car hit Hunt’s vehicle from the right as the SUV was traveling on a straight path across the intersection.
Law enforcement officials told TMZ she was the sole passenger in the backseat of the vehicle when the incident took place.
According to sources, Hunt was briefly admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, L.A., on account of pain she was experiencing after the crash.
Just an unfortunate event
Hunt’s rep told TMZ the actor was shaken by the crash but has not sustained any major injuries as a result. The status of the SUV driver and the driver of the other vehicle is currently unknown but Hunt was one of the multiple people admitted to a local hospital after the collision.
According to reports, drugs and alcohol are not thought to have been involved. Subsequent police investigations of the crash have determined no crime has been committed.
Here’s hoping for all things good
Hunt made her name in the 1990s sitcom Mad About You, where she starred as Jamie Stemple Buchman, a public relations specialist and one-half of the series’ main couple.
The show aired on NBC from 1992 to 1999, in which time Hunt’s performance as Buchman earned her three Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress and four Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
