Renee Zellweger has been in a car crash.

Renee Zellweger has been in a car crash.

The ‘New In Town’ actress was involved in an accident in Beverly Hills yesterday, but was uninjured in the collision.

Police Lieutenant Tony Lee confirmed: “A green Ford Explorer made an illegal U-turn in front of her silver Mercedes. Ms. Zellweger was not injured, the damage to her car was very minor. She was very polite and sincere.”

The unnamed driver was attempting to leave a parking space when the incident took place, and swapped details with Renee shortly afterwards.

Lee explained: “The incident will be handled between their insurance companies.

“Ms. Zellweger requested her car be towed from the scene, and also requested that officers call her a cab.”

Renee’s spokesperson has not issued a statement regarding the accident.

The 40-year-old actress is believed to be dating Bradley Cooper, after the pair were seen enjoying several intimate dates in Barcelona, Spain.

However, the actress is staying tight-lipped about the romance, saying: “I won’t talk about it. It leads to nowhere good.”
