Helen Hunt was hospitalized after a scary car accident in Los Angeles on Wednesday, October 16th where her car flipped onto its side.
The Los Angeles Police Department told PEOPLE that the actress, 56, along with a number of people involved, was sent the hospital following the accident, which occurred on the corner of San Vicente and Tremaine Avenue. Police had determined that there was no crime committed.
Footage of the incident, obtained by TMZ, shows Hunt's SUV trying to cross an intersection, and when it was thought to be clear, another car comes at the last second and hits the back of Helen's just as she had almost made it across the way. Hunt's SUV can then be seen flipping over onto its side (with the "Mad About You" star sitting in the back seat). The clip also shows paramedics and an ambulance arriving to the scene to transport everyone to the hospital.
According to TMZ, after "complaining of pain," Hunt was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills in stable condition. A few hours later, she was released and seen leaving the hospital, and a rep explained to TMZ that she "was shaken, but suffered no major injuries." The condition of the person driving Hunt's SUV or the other driver involved is not known at this time.
