A spokesperson with the Los Angeles Police Department told People that “Hunt was among a number of people who were transported to a local hospital but police investigated the traffic incident and determined that there was no crime committed.”

TMZ, which obtained footage of the accident, reports that Hunt’s SUV flipped on its side after the other car clipped the SUV while going through the intersection.

Hunt’s rep told the outlet that the Mad About You actress was “shaken but suffered no major injuries.”

Hunt is currently filming a limited series reboot of Mad About You.

According to Entertainment Weekly, series stars Paul Reiser and Hunt have signed on the dotted line to mount a revival of the hit sitcom, which ran from 1992 until 1999.

In Mad About You, Reiser and Hunt played a married couple dealing with the ups and downs of wedded bliss in 1990s Manhattan, with a supporting cast that included John Pankow (Episodes) and Lisa Kudrow, whose waitress character was revealed to be the twin sister of Phoebe on Friends (she actually did double duty on both shows for a while).
