Heather Locklear Injured in Car Wreck, Investigators Looking Into Phone (UPDATE)

Heather Locklear crashed her car into a ditch and was transported to the hospital, and police are looking into whether the crash may have been caused by a curve in the road or distracted driving.

The Ventura County Sheriffs Department tell The Blast they responded to Locklear’s accident in Thousand Oaks, CA at 5:40 PM Thursday evening.

Police say she drove her car off the road into a ditch and suffered minor injuries in the accident. The actress was transported to a local hospital.

As for the cause of the accident, we’re told drugs and alcohol were not a factor.  Cops say they are investigating the cause of the crash, including two big possible factors — a sharp curve in the road and whether Locklear was using her phone at the time of the crash.

We’re told looking into phone use is standard protocol when the cause of the crash isn’t 100% clear. Cops tell us they did not grill Locklear on the details because of her injuries.

We’re told they plan on following up with her for the full story.

UPDATE

10:00AM: Cops have since cleared Locklear in the accident.
