January Jones involved in car wreck, reportedly blames paparazzi
Mad Men star January Jones, who plays Betty, the icy blonde (soon-to-be-ex) wife of Jon Hamm's Don Draper, was apparently involved in a car collision in Los Angeles Thursday night, the LAPD tells TMZ.
The actress, 32, was at the wheel of a Range Rover around 9 p.m. when she allegedly lost control and collided with three parked vehicles, resulting in major damage.
One witness is quoted as telling police that Jones left the scene on foot, having said, "I can't deal with this commotion."
Jones reportedly returned later and said she had left the scene – and her license in the Range Rover – because she was being followed by paparazzi. The report says she walked home to call 911 before returning to her vehicle.
She has not been cited or arrested in the case.
Police, who have impounded her car and launched an investigation, say no alcohol or drugs were involved.
