The driver for Jamie McCourt struck a pedestrian while driving her to court Monday morning, police said.

The car was backing up slowly near Los Angeles Superior Court in downtown L.A. about 8 a.m. when the person was struck, said Lt. Lorenzo Moriel with the LAPD Central Traffic Division.

The person did complain of injuries but did not need to be taken to the hospital.

McCourt was on her way to court at the time. She and husband Frank McCourt are in the midst of a divorce trial with ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers at stake.
