After a minor car accident back in October, Emmylou Harris is being investigated for hit and run.

The country crooner allegedly struck a vehicle on the L.A. Freeway on the night of October 1st with her rental car and did not stop.

According to TMZ, the other drive filed a report with the California Highway Patrol and the case was forwarded to the Los Angeles County District Attorney for possible prosecution.

A rep for the 65-year-old singer acknowledged a "minor traffic" accident that day, but claims Emmylou didn't realize there was enough contact to warrant an exchange of information.

Downplaying the scenario, the rep added that it was a "garden-variety accident that happens everyday on the 405."
