"Lea was hit and notified the police," says the rep. "She was not injured and is fine."

Adds a source close to the star:  "A couple of drunk girls hit her, got out of the car, giggled that she was famous, said something like 'are you drunk, too?' Then they drove off."

Michele wrote down the other car's license plate number and informed the authorities, says the source.

This isn't the first auto incident for the actress, who talked about getting into accident before her audition for the Fox hit.

"For my second audition I got into a massive car wreck, left my crashed car in the street and ran into the audition with cuts and glass in my hair," she said. "And then on the final audition, I had the worst neck ache from the car accident."
