TLC reality star Honey Boo Boo and her family were injured in a car crash Monday evening. Family patriarch Sugar Bear was turning left at an intersection when a driver — allegedly speeding in the opposite direction with his lights off — rammed into the family’s SUV.
Everyone in the vehicle was taken to the hospital: Sugar Bear suffered a contusion on his back, Mama June sprained her back and neck, Honey Boo Boo hit her head on the window and Pumpkin had severe chest bruises.
It feels weird to type a serious sentence that includes so many cartoonish names. Thankfully, they were all okay in the end, so joke-making can commence. Here’s a statement obtained by Entertainment Weekly:
“As many of you have heard we were in a car accident last night. It was really scary for us, since it was the first time any of us had ever been in a wreck. We are definitely really sore today, but our top priority is to celebrate Pumpkin’s birthday. She turned 14 today and no matter how sore we feel we are going to go out and celebrate. As always we want to thank everyone for their support and well wishes.”
Happy days are here again.
