Ellen and Portia Rear-ended

Ellen and her girlfriend Portia were hit by another Porsche this weekend in LA. The two walked away with minor injuries, and they're very lucky because the woman who hit them was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving. What a way for Ellen to kick off her new season of her show. It's a good thing they pre-taped segments in NYC so she could fully recover. Here's more:

The three-vehicle collision occurred when DeGeneres, driving a 2006 Porsche Carrera, stopped at a light on Sunset Boulevard. A 2002 Buick Le Sabre, driven by two men in their 20s, stopped behind her.

Then a woman identified as Jeanne Werber, 52, slammed her 2002 Porsche Carrera into the back of the Buick, which in turn collided with DeGeneres's car, a rep for the LAPD tells PEOPLE. Werber, who had minor cuts on her leg, was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

No one required medical attention. DeGeneres "had a little neck and back pain, but it doesn't look like it was anything serious," LAPD Sgt. Ken Buscarino told the Associated Press. De Rossi complained of back pain; the men in the Buick suffered scratches.
