Helen Hunt was involved in a car accident on Wednesday.

An officer for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to E! News that the incident occurred in Los Angeles' Mid-City area on the corner of San Vicente and Tremaine Avenue.

Video footage obtained by TMZ showed Hunt's black SUV crossing the intersection and then being struck by a white Honda, causing the Mad About You star's car to roll over on its side. Sources told the celebrity news outlet Hunt was sitting in the back of the car as a passenger at the time.

The actress was then transported to a local hospital, which TMZ reported was Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills. The 56-year-old celebrity was released from the hospital hours later. E! News learned she is now at home recovering without any major injuries.

According to People, police investigated the incident and determined that no crime was committed. 

Hunt is an Oscar winner and a four-time Emmy winner. In addition to playing Jamie on the sitcom Mad About You, she's appeared in a number of films, including As Good as It Gets and Twister.
