Glee star in LA car crash

LEA Michele was involved in a car crash on Friday morning (25.03.11).

The 24-year-old 'Glee' actress - who plays Rachel Berry in the Fox television series - was involved in a smash with another vehicle while driving down Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles on her way home from work, but is said to be doing "fine".

A representative for the star told "Lea was hit and notified the police. She was not injured and is fine."

Despite Lea emerging from the incident relatively unscathed, an onlooker explained she quickly noted down the other car's details when she became aware she had been hit by a "couple of drunk girls".

A source added: "A couple of drunk girls hit her, got out of the car, giggled that she was famous, said something like, 'Are you drunk, too?' Then they drove off."

This isn't the first time the brunette beauty has been involved in a car crash.

Lea recently admitted she turned up to her 'Glee' audition with glass in her hair after getting into a "massive car wreck".

She said: "For my second audition I got into a massive car wreck, left my crashed car in the street and ran into the audition with cuts and glass in my hair. And then on the final audition, I had the worst neck ache from the car accident."
