Young reality star Honey Boo Boo and members of her family were in a car accident on Monday night. The 8-year-old, along with her mother, Mama June, and older sister, Pumpkin, were passengers in the car being driven by dad, Sugar Bear.
According to TMZ, the family was at a red light, waiting to turn left. When the light turned green, Sugar Bear began to make his turn, but a truck, which was allegedly speeding, ran a red and smashed into the car.
Mama June issued a statement regarding the accident. “As many of you have heard, we were in a car accident last night,” she said. “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.”
Season three of the family’s reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is set to premiere on Jan. 16 on TLC.
