Ellen, Portia not seriously hurt in auto crash

Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi walked away from a three-vehicle collision Friday complaining of minor injuries, according to police.

"[Ellen] had a little neck and back pain but it doesn't look like it was anything serious," said Sgt. Ken Buscarino of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The collision occurred just before 4 p.m. on Sunset Boulevard, Buscarino said. Degeneres stopped her 2006 Porsche Carrera at a light, followed by a 2002 Buick Le Sabre with two men in their 20s. Some later reports place the two men as paparazzi.

A 2002 Porsche Carrera, driven by Jeanne Werber, 52, of Los Angeles, slammed into the back of the Buick, which in turn rear-ended DeGeneres's Porsche.

"Degeneres was in front," Buscarino said. "The third car ran into the second car, which hit her."

Werber was arrested for suspicion of drunken driving and had minor cuts on her leg. Her car had some damage to the front end.

The Buick sustained major damage to the front and rear, and the two men inside had scratches.

A later NBC Access Hollywood report had both Degeneres and De Rossi complaining of pain to their necks and backs. DeGeneres's car had moderate damage to the rear.

No one required medical attention at the scene, Buscarino said. (AP)
