Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon suffered minor injuries after being hit by a car while out jogging on Wednesday, police and a spokesperson said.

The 35-year-old was struck by a vehicle driven by an 84-year-old local woman while running in the seafront district of Santa Monica west of of Los Angeles, a police spokesperson said.

Witherspoon was on an unmarked crosswalk at the time, and the driver - who was travelling at 32km/h - was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian, said the spokesperson.

The actress was taken to hospital, but was discharged and went home later to recover, her publicist said. "She was hit by a car today in Santa Monica while out for a run," said the spokesperson.

Witherspoon "was not seriously injured and is resting comfortably at home", she added.
