A suspected drink-driver crashed into an SUV carrying actress Leah Remini and singer Jennifer Lopez and her two children then fled the scene, it has emerged.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's sergeant Philip Brooks said Remini, who was driving Lopez's SUV at about 8pm on Saturday, stopped at a traffic light in Malibu. Their vehicle was then rear-ended by a pick-up truck. No one was injured.

The drivers got out of their vehicles to assess the minor damage and were about to exchange information when the man got into his truck and drove off.

Deputies stopped him a short distance away and he was arrested and booked on suspicion of drunken driving and hit and run.

TMZ first reported the crash.

Remini is best known for her role as Carrie Heffernan on the CBS sitcom The King Of Queens.
