( LOS ANGELES – Angelina Jolie was in a car accident on Sunday, one that witnesses state was “pretty bad” with both tires on the vehicle the actress was riding in exploding after the car skidded in the rain and hit a curb. X17 Online reports that Angelina was being chauffeured back to her Los Angeles home when the accident occurred.

Jolie was at the Writers’ Guild Theater in Beverly Hills for a screening of Unbroken, a movie that she recently directed. After attending the screening, X17 reports that the black SUV she was riding in “took off rather quickly” from the theater and then skidded on the wet road, sliding into a curb with “extreme force.”

The accident happened shortly before 7 pm., with the driver almost losing control of the vehicle when two of the SUV’s tires exploded after hitting the curb. Witnesses noted that the SUV Jolie was riding in hit the curb at a “significant speed.”
Jolie reportedly did not receive medical attention at the scene, with Mail Online reporting that Brad Pitt’s wife was picked up by another driver in a second hired car shortly after the accident.
Prior to the crash, Jolie smiled for the paparazzi while on the red carpet prior to the screening of her new film, Unbroken. The movie, due out on Christmas, is based on the best-selling book Unbroken written by Laura Hillenbrad.

Unbroken chronicles the life of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who was captured by Japanese forces during World War II and spent two years as a prisoner of war. The movie stars Jack O’Connell, a British actor who the Hollywood Reporter states “has displayed great promise in a few other very small films.”
Mail Online reports that Jolie’s children have seen the movie and think Zamperini, who died at the age of 97 last July, was a hero.

Angelina Jolie has not issued a statement about Sunday’s car accident, but from all accounts, it appears that the actress, director and mother of six was only shaken up and not injured.
