Emmylou Harris has been charged with hit and run following an incident which took place in Los Angeles in October of last year.
The singer was charged today (January 30) by the LA County District Attorney, reports TMZ.
If she is convicted on the charge of hit and run, she could face up to six months in jail.
At the time, Harris’ agent said that the incident, which happened on one of Los Angeles’ busy freeways, was a “garden-variety accident that happens every day on the 405”. They went on to state that Harris drove away from the incident as she didn’t realise that she had actually hit another vehicle.
