On September 29, actresses Leah Remini and Jennifer Lopez were hit by a drunk driver while driving along Pacific Coast Highway in California. The two celebrities were stopped at a red light when a small pick-up truck hit them from behind and then sped off. They called police and provided a description of the car. Authorities located and apprehend the driver shortly after the incident. The driver of the pick-up truck was under the influence and arrested for DUI and hit-and-run.
Lopez and Remini had two children with them in the back seat of the car. Thankfully, in this case, no one was injured.
