JULIETTE Lewis has been involved in a hit-and-run accident.

The 37-year-old actress had been out for an event for her new movie 'Conviction' last night (06.10.10) when her car was hit at an intersection in Burbank, California, requiring her to go to a nearby hospital.

The star's representative told TMZ: "Juliette went to the hospital to be checked out and is a bit banged up and sore but thankfully OK. She is now resting at home."

Juliette's car was said to have been "completely totalled" in the accident, which saw the vehicle "T-Boned" - where the side of the car is hit directly by another.

The driver of the other vehicle - a Honda - fled the scene and law enforcement officers discovered the vehicle a short distance away.

The driver has yet to be found and an investigation has been launched.

Earlier in the evening Juliette was joined by Minnie Driver and Hilary Swank at the Beverley Hills premiere of 'Conviction'.
