Reese Witherspoon Has A Black Eye After Car Accident (PHOTO)

Reese Witherspoon isn't letting a little thing like getting hit by a car hold her back.

Despite the black eye and bandaid on her forehead, the mom of two young children looked to be in good spirits laughing and smiling, on her way to a birthday party yesterday in Los Angeles.

Witherspoon was struck by the car of an 84-year-old woman, who failed to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The actress is not pressing charges against the woman, who told TMZ, she felt "awful" about the accident.
