Jennifer Lopez rear-ended by drunk driver, cops say

Jennifer Lopez escaped injury when the car she was in was struck from behind by a suspected drunk driver,  the Associated Press reported.

Lopez and her two kids, along with actress Leah  Remini, were in Lopez' car when it was struck Saturday night in Malibu, Calif. The other driver, who attempted to flee, "was arrested and booked on suspicion of drunken driving and hit and run," the AP reported.

J-Lo had plenty to say about it. She let loose in an Instagram post:

"Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!! Thank god everyone ok!!!"

She then sprinkled hashtags like confetti:
