According to reports, Lewis was on the backseat of a Lincoln Town car when a Honda ran a stoplight and t-boned their vehicle.

The Honda was found a few distances away from the crash but the driver has already left the scene.

The unidentified driver will be facing a felony hit-and-run charge once he (or she) is found.

Lewis, on the other hand complained of pain in her head, neck and back so she was quickly transported to a hospital for testing.

Aside from pain, she also sustained some bruising due to the car accident.

Fortunately, her injuries were not serious.

Lewis’ rep has told UsMagazine that “The Sedan Juliette was traveling in was completely totaled. Ms. Lewis went to the hospital to be checked out and is a bit banged up and sore, but otherwise thankfully okay. She is now resting at home.”

Lewis is popularly known for her roles in Martin Scorsese’s remake of Cape Fear and the iconic Mallory Knox in Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers.

She also recently parted ways with the Licks and has since formed a new band, The New Romantiques.
