MALIBU, Calif. – Shannen Doherty was bruised and cut on her thigh in a car crash that sent another motorist to the hospital, authorities and Doherty's publicist said Tuesday.
The 34-year-old actress was driving a Range Rover and making a left turn onto the Pacific Coast Highway on Monday when there was a collision with another vehicle, said Lt. Steve Wilson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
James Warren Paul, the driver of the other vehicle, was taken to Santa Monica Hospital, Wilson said. The extent of Paul's injuries weren't known, he said, and the hospital would only say that no one by that name had been admitted.
"She went in a private car to Cedars-Sinai (Medical Center). She refused to go in an ambulance. She was examined in the emergency room for thigh bruises and cuts," Zelnik said.
Doherty was resting comfortably at home Tuesday.
"She's in pain a little bit," Zelnik said. "Her left side is a little messed up, to use her words."
Wilson said investigators listed Doherty as "the party most at fault," but Zelnik noted there were no citations.
Doherty was arrested for drunken driving in 2001 and ordered to serve five days on a work-release program after pleading no contest to the misdemeanor charge.
