LOS ANGELES – Actress Drew Barrymore was rear-ended Monday in a hit-and-run car accident and managed to follow the other vehicle to get its license plate, authorities said.
The 33-year-old actress was not injured in the accident Monday in West Hollywood, Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Kristin Aloma said. She said she didn't know the extent of damage to Barrymore's car.
Instead of staying put, though, Barrymore followed the offending vehicle and snagged its license plate number, which she then handed over to sheriff's deputies, according to Aloma.
"It could be dangerous," Aloma said of following someone after an accident. Still, she emphasized that getting a license plate number is instrumental to tracking down a hit-and-run motorist.
On Tuesday morning though, there had been no arrests in the Barrymore accident.
Barrymore's screen credits include the "Charlie's Angels" movies, "Fever Pitch" and "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial."
