Wearing a black top with sunglasses on her head to reveal her injuries, Witherspoon was seen chatting with a friend before going to a birthday party with a friend in Los Angeles yesterday.

Witherspoon was briefly hospitalized last Wednesday when a car hit her while she was crossing the street during a jog. She was released after being treated for a head gash, and was "really frightened" by the whole accident.
