Emmylou Harris Facing Hit & Run Charges in Los Angeles

December 29, 2012 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

TMZ reports that Emmylou Harris is now in the crosshairs of the LA County District Attorney for an hit and run accident on the Los Angeles Freeway.

Law enforcement sources say the incident allegedly happened on October 1 at around 10PM. Reportedly Emmylou Harris was driving a rental car on the 405 Freeway when she hit another car and took off without stopping or exchanging information. The California Highway Patrol opened a hit and run investigation after the other driver filed a report. The investigation is now completed and was sent to the DA who will decide if Harris should be prosecuted.

Harris rep says she was involved in a “minor traffic accident. She unintentionally rubbed bumpers with another vehicle.” The rep also said Harris didn’t realize the cars made contact so she drove off and that it was a “garden-variety accident that happens everyday on the 405,” and Emmylou has turned the matter over to her insurance company.
