Talk about jinxing things.

Looks as if our ‘no ‘Mad Men’ news to be found’ post on Tuesday was bad news for actress January Jones, who Thursday evening was involved in a multiple-car crash that she reportedly blames on being followed by paparazzi.

Police told TMZ that Jones was driving home after watching the Lakers-Celtics game at a West Hollywood hotel, lost control of her Range Rover while paparazzi were following her and hit three parked cars. She left her license in the car and walked half a block home to avoid harassment and to call 911, then returned to the scene, TMZ says.

Alcohol was not involved, the cops said, and no hit-and-run investigation will be done. Paparazzi have been on Jones’ tail since a gossip-inducing photo taken Wednesday morning hit the Internet.
