And they say exercise is good for you!

Reese Witherspoon was rushed to the hospital this morning after being hit by a car while jogging in Santa Monica, police confirm to E! News.

The Oscar winner sustained minor injuries and is now "resting comfortably at home" after receiving treatment, said her rep, Nanci Ryder.

Officers responded to a call placed at 11:14 a.m. regarding a traffic collision involving a vehicle and a female pedestrian, according to the Santa Monica Police Department.

The car that hit Witherspoon, who was running within an unmarked crosswalk, was going approximately 20 miles per hour, police said.

The driver was an 84-year-old woman who was interviewed at the scene and then cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Witherspoon was transported via ambulance to a nearby hospital.
