Jennifer Lopez in drink drive crash

JENNIFER Lopez has been involved in a car crash with a drink driver.

The 'Get Right' hitmaker and her friend Leah Remini were travelling down the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California, yesterday(27.08.14) when they were rear-ended by a drunk driver who smashed into the back of their vehicle and quickly fled the scene.

The pair - who are thought to have been taking the American Idol judge's new car for a spin - were left shaken by the incident and quickly called police to share details of the hit and run.

The authorities soon caught up with the intoxicated pick-up truck driver a short distance from the crash and arrested him on suspicion of DUI and hit and run, reports gossip website TMZ.com.

The 45-year-old singer took to Instagram to vent her frustration following the smash.

She wrote on the picture sharing site yesterday, along with a photo of her and Leah sitting in the new vehicle: "Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!! Thank god everyone ok!!! #GRATEFUL #THANKYOUGOD.

"#DontdrinkandDrive!!!! #cursedthatfoolout #theBronxcameout #dontmesswithmycocnuts #mamabear #leahstayedcalm #thatwasweird (sic)".

It is not known whether J Lo's six-year-old twins Max and Emme were present in the car at the time of the crash, although it is thought that all the occupants were left unhurt by the accident.
