The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office is taking a close look at an alleged hit-and-run incident involving Emmylou Harris on October 1. According to TMZ.com , the 12-time Grammy winner allegedly hit a car with her rental car on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles and then fled the scene.
The other driver filed a police report, and that launched a California Highway Patrol investigation. The CHP sent their findings to the district attorney’s office, who will ultimately decide if the country singer should be prosecuted.
Emmylou's spokesperson tells TMZ that it was a "minor traffic accident," adding that Harris "unintentionally rubbed bumpers with another vehicle." The rep says Emmylou didn't even realize the cars made contact.
The rep adds that the incident was a "garden-variety accident that happens every day on the 405," and Harris has reported the collision to her insurance company.
