Crash investigated

Los Angeles police are investigating a minor traffic crash involving actress Amanda Bynes after a person reported the actress left without providing her information.

Police Lt. Andy Neiman said Sunday the 26-year-old actress stopped after the crash and looked at the other vehicle and determined there wasn’t any damage. Police said Bynes drove away without giving her information, which is required by law.

Neiman said police will turn over the case over to the city attorney’s office for review.

No one was injured and the damage to the other person’s vehicle in the Aug. 4 incident was more than $800.

Bynes has pleaded not guilty to a driving under the influence charge after she was arrested in April for grazing a sheriff’s patrol car.
