On Saturday around 8 p.m., the latter star was driving J.Lo's new SUV on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California while the singer sat in the passenger's seat and her son and daughter, Max and Emme, sat in the back. The vehicle was rear-ended by a man driving a small pickup truck, police told E! News, adding that no one in Lopez's car was injured.
The group and the male driver got out of their cars and as they started to exchange information, the man then returned to his truck and sped off. A police officer pulled him over a short distance away and arrested him on suspicion of hit-and-run and driving under the influence. He has not been identified and has not commented.
Shortly before the crash, Lopez shared on her Instagram page a photo of herself and Remini sitting in a vehicle and described the scary incident.
"Sitting at a light, riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!!" Lopez said. "Thank god everyone ok!!! #GRATEFUL #THANKYOUGOD #DontdrinkandDrive!!!! #cursedthatfoolout #theBronxcameout #dontmesswithmycocnuts #mamabear #leahstayedcalm #thatwasweird."
Four hours before she posted her photo, she shared a video of her son in a car. He is wearing a New York Yankees baseball cap (mom is from The Bronx) and moving his head along with the beat to Drake's 2014 song "0 To 100."
"Max," she says. "New York in the house? Go ahead, Max!"
Lopez also shared a photo of Max and Emme sitting in the backseat with Remini's daughter, Sofia,10.
"These three cuties make my day!! #Coconuts #Sofia #lunchwthekiddies #bigpimpin' #brooklynindahouse," she said.
Lopez and Remini, who is originally from Brooklyn, New York, have been besties for years. On Thursday, the latter star shared an adorable photo on her Instagram page showing the two bantering.
On Saturday, they brought their kids to Demi Lovato's concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
