Honey Boo Boo’s family was involved in a car accident in Georgia this week that required some of the reality stars to be hospitalized briefly.
Alana Thompson and her family were reportedly out shopping when the crash happened on Monday night.
Gossip website TMZ has reported that Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson was driving with Mama June and daughters Alana “Honey Boo Boo,” Jessica, and Lauryn “Pumpkin” in the vehicle.
“They were at a red light, waiting to turn left,” TMZ reported.
“The light turned green and Sugar Bear began the turn. A guy driving a truck was allegedly speeding in the opposite direction with his lights off and crashed into them.”
A source told TMZ that Sugar Bear has a contusion on his back, Mama June has a back and neck sprain, Honey Boo Boo hit her head against a passenger window and has a headache, and Pumpkin has severe chest bruises and is having panic attacks.
“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,” June Shannon said in a statement obtained by Entertainment Weekly.
“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.”
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo returns to TV with new episodes January 16.
