Helen Hunt had a frightening car accident.

LAPD tells ET that police responded to a traffic collision on the 4800 block of San Vicente Blvd at the corner of Tremaine Avenue in Los Angeles on Wednesday, October 16 at 4:50 p.m. involving two vehicles. There was one person transported to the hospital.

The 56-year-old Oscar winner was taken to the hospital after the vehicle she was riding in was struck by another driver in the Mid-City area of Los Angeles, according to multiplereports.

ET has since learned that Hunt is at home recovering and has sustained no serious injuries. 

Hunt was reportedly riding in the back of a black SUV when her vehicle was clipped by another car, which flipped Hunt's SUV onto its side.

The actress was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, complaining of pain following the collision, TMZ reports. She was reportedly released later in the evening, after being examined by doctors.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told People that Hunt was one of multiple people taken to the hospital following the incident, and that police investigating the crash determined that no crime had occurred.

ET has reached out for comment on the accident.

The actress is currently in production on a limited series revival of her hit TV sitcom Mad About You, in which she stars opposite her friend and former co-star Paul Reiser.
