LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress Juliette Lewis was hospitalized briefly after a car in which she was riding was involved in a collision, but she is now home and resting, her spokeswoman said on Thursday.

Lewis, whose movie credits include "Natural Born Killers," was returning home Wednesday night from an event for her upcoming movie "Conviction" when a sedan in which she was riding was hit broadside by another car, which fled the scene.

"Ms. Lewis went to the hospital to be checked out and is a bit banged up and sore but otherwise thankfully okay. She is now resting at home," her representative said in a statement.
