Actress Resse Witherspoon is resting safely at home tonight (Sept. 7), but she suffered quite a scare earlier.

ET reports the 35-year-old Oscar winner was sent to the hospital after she was hit by a car.

The Santa Monica police confirm that a vehicle was going approximately 20 miles-per-hour when it struck Witherspoon, who was jogging.

She was taken to the hospital to treat minor injuries, but her rep says she has since returned home.

No other details were available from the police, other than the fact that the accident was not a hit-and-run.
