Drew Barrymore Uninjured In Hit-And-Run Accident

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Drew Barrymore was involved in a hit-and-run accident, but instead of staying put, she followed the other driver and took down the license plate number.

The 33-year-old actress wasn't injured when her car was rear-ended Monday in West Hollywood, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Kristin Aloma.

Aloma said Barrymore followed the other vehicle and got its license plate number, which she then handed over to sheriff's deputies.

She said she didn't know the extent of damage to Barrymore's car.

No arrests had been reported Tuesday morning.

"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.

Barrymore's screen credits include the "Charlie's Angels" movies, "Fever Pitch" and "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial."
