reese witherspoon june 2011 gi Reese Witherspoon passes on prosecuting 84 year oldReese, are you feeling OK? We hear those head injuries can be tricky.

It seems Reese Witherspoon will not press charges against the 84-year-old woman who failed to yield for a pedestrian in a crosswalk while driving and then hit the jogging actress while going 20 miles per hour yesterday (Wednesday, Sept. 7). Sure, she escaped with just a cut to her forehead, but still … what about vengeance? Retribution? Pain and suffering?

“The incident is being treated as an accident,” a source tells Us Weekly, noting that typically such an incident would be considered a “moving violation” and would carry a fine and a point towards the driver’s license.
