Reese Witherspoon has quite a shiner. The actress stepped out earlier today sporting a black eye and a bandaged forehead, which she sustained after getting hit by a car last Wednesday. She seemed in good spirits though, smiling and chatting with a friend as they arrived at a pal’s birthday bash.

According to TMZ, the incident occurred when Reese was out for a jog, and a 84-year-old female driver, who failed to yield at a pedestrian crosswalk, struck her. A rep confirmed that Witherspoon will not be pressing charges against the woman.

After the accident, Witherspoon was taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance but the 35-year-old was not seriously injured and was “resting comfortably at home,” according to her rep.

Just a day prior to the accident, Reese beat the LA heat with some ice cream. She, her hubby Jim Toth, as well as her kids (mini-me) daughter Ava and son Deacon stopped by Pinkberry  to indulge their sweet tooth cravings.
