Veteran actress Eartha Kitt has been released from hospital after suffering minor injuries in a car accident.

A car driven by the 77-year-old - who played the original Catwoman in the 1960s BATMAN TV show - collided with another vehicle and flipped over in Norwalk, Connecticut on Thursday (5JUL04).

She was treated at a local hospital and released.

Kitt's two poodles were travelling with her in the all-terrain vehicle when the crash happened - but both were unhurt.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
