Honey Boo Boo and her family haven’t exactly been in reality headlines all that much these days as their 15 minutes seems to have slipped away from them, but they were involved in a bit of a scare this week.
ABC reports that the family was in a car crash last night:
“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,” she told ABC News in a statement through the TLC show’s publicist. “As always we want to thank everyone for their support and well wishes. 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.”
June suffered back and neck sprains, Sugar Bear has a contusion on his back, Pumpkin has chest bruises and Honey Boo Boo herself smacked her head on a window. They were struck by a truck without its lights on, and the family was not at fault in the crash.
Best wishes for their speedy recovery, and thankfully it wasn’t more serious.
