On September 27, notable singer and actress Jennifer Lopez was a victim of a drunk-driving accident.

Luckily, no one was hurt. Lopez was accompanied by best friend Leah Remini, her daughter Sofia, 10, and Lopez’s six year old twins.

According to sources, Lopez and Remini were on their way to the Demi Lovato concert when a drunk driver rear ended their vehicle.

Lopez later said, “Everybody’s fine, thank you for asking… just a little shook up. You know you get hit from behind like that, it felt like a boulder fell on top of the car… I was super scared that something happened to the kids.”

The man who rear-ended Lopez has been identified as Robert J. Reitz of Las Vegas. Reitz, 53, was booked for a misdemeanor after the scary accident and was released from jail early the next day on $15,000 bail, according to police and jail records.
