Glee's Lea Michele 'struck by car'

Lea Michele was reportedly hit by a car while driving home from work in Los Angeles.

The Glee star - who plays goody-two-shoes Rachel Berry in the hit musical show - was said to be driving home when she was struck by another car on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles at around 2am on Friday.

A representative for 24-year-old Lea told People the actress walked away uninjured and is doing fine. She has reported the accident to the police.

Lea revealed in an interview with New York magazine in 2009 how she had a car accident on the way to her Glee audition.

She said: "I'm a pretty good driver. But there was construction and confusion. I hear you have to crash your car once in California before you can be initiated as a true LA resident.

"So for me, I don't consider it a problem. I consider it, 'Okay, good! Got that out of the way. Now I live here'. "
