Hayden Panettiere was involved in a car crash in Nashville, Tenn., earlier this month, TMZ reports.

On Nov. 14, Panettiere's BMW collided with a Geo Prizm after she ran a red light through an intersection.

According to a report obtained by TMZ, the "Nashville" star, 23, was driving in the right lane through the intersection when the other driver made a left turn into her lane -- instead of into the left lane.

A witness confirmed to authorities that Panettiere had a red light at the time of the incident.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene, but thankfully, no one was seriously injured.

"Thank you to the Nashville police department," Panettiere tweeted, "Was in a scary accident and they were great!"
