A man has been arrested in connection with a car crash that left Australian model Miranda Kerr with whiplash and back injuries.

The Victoria's Secret stunner was spotted out and about in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening (12Mar13) sporting a neck brace and it has since emerged she was hospitalised after the rear-end smash on Monday (11Mar13).

Kerr's Australian publicist Annie Kelly has confirmed her client was a passenger in a car which was rammed by an alleged drunk driver.

The driver of the other car is expected to be charged by Los Angeles police, according to the Sydney Daily Telegraph.
