Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her family were in a serious car accident on Jan. 6, 2014. Sugar Bear was driving the whole family in their new Suburban last night. A man was speeding in his truck coming from the opposite direction. The man's headlights were turned off while it was dark, he ran a red light and crashed right into the Thompson family.
Mama June, Sugar Bear, Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin were injured in the crash. The family was taken to a local hospital. Mama June has a sprained neck and back, Pumpkin has severe bruises on her chest, Honey Boo Boo's head hit the passenger window pretty hard and Sugar Bear has a back contusion.
Mama June said in a statement today,
"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.”
“Honey Boo Boo” season three will air all new episodes on TLC starting Jan. 16, 2014.
