TMZ has reported that the 56-year old actress was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for immediate treatment. Stephen Huvane, designated representative of Hunt, told the press that she has been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home.
He also said that she is well and has not sustained any major injuries.
LAPD spokesperson Officer Drake Madison confirmed that the accident involved two vehicles colliding. the accident happened on Wednesday at 4:50 p.m. along Tremaine Avenue and San Vincente Boulevard in mid-city Los Angeles.

A video with the Wednesday timestamp obtained by TMZ showed a white sedan striking a black SUV in the intersection. The SUV continued and skid through the intersection before flipping over onto the driver's side.
The rescuer, Zarren Thomas, leaped into the scene and pulled Hunt out of her car to save her life. Hunt was taken out of her car that flipped soon after it collided with another vehicle.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Thomas said he was working and just went out to get some fresh air when the crash happened. He detailed that he had to get on top of the car with the help of a fellow employee in order to get the door open.
