Hollywood star being sued for hitting two pedestrians

Actress Vinessa Shaw is being sued after allegedly hitting two pedestrians with her car.

The star, who is best known for her roles in Hocus Pocus and Ray Donovan, was reportedly driving through Hollywood when she struck two women, knocking them to the ground.

According to the court documents obtained by TMZ, Maridalia Chepi-Nolasco and Anastasia Gregorio Arce have brought charges against Shaw, claiming that they sustained “severe injuries” as a result of the incident.

The star’s response to the claim has not been revealed as of yet.

Shaw began her acting career with a role in the horror movie Home Sweet Home, but is perhaps most recognisable for playing the character Allison in the cult Halloween film Hocus Pocus, alongside Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker.

The actress appeared most recently on TV screens in the US crime drama series Ray Donovan, in which she played the role of Kate McPherson.
