D BURBANK, CALIF. (AP) - Actress Juliette Lewis has been injured in a hit-and-run crash in Burbank, police said.

Lewis was a passenger in the back seat of a Lincoln Town Car Wednesday night when a driver ran a stoplight, smashed into Lewis‘ vehicle and kept going, Sgt. Sean Kelley said.

The car was found a short distance away, but the driver had fled the scene.

Lewis complained of pain in her head, back and neck and some bruising. She was taken to a hospital for evaluation but her injuries were not serious, Kelley said.

The driver will be arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run when found, Kelley said.

The 37-year-old Lewis received a best supporting actress Oscar nomination for her role in the 1991 film “Cape Fear.” She appears in the soon-to-be released film “Conviction.”

A phone message left for a representative for Lewis was not immediately returned late Thursday.
