Honey Boo and her family members were hurt in a car crash on Jan. 6, according to the Kansas City Star and other sources. The wreck, which involved the reality show stars' new Suburban, was a bad one and happened in the reality show clan's Georgia home town of McIntyre.

So what happened?

TMZ says Honey Boo Boo was in a car driven by her dad, Sugar Bear. He was allegedly making a left on a green light when a truck driver reportedly went through the red light at the intersection and crashed into the family's vehicle.

So who was hurt?

Apparently, Sugar Bear was left with a back contusion and Mama June was left with back problems as well. Honey Boo Boo is said to be suffering a headache after hitting her head on the car's window.

Meanwhile, Pumpkin, who is celebrating her 14th birthday today, is reportedly complaining of chest bruises as well as panic attacks.

This happened on the heels of a disastrous trip to Disney World in which more than one of the family members fell ill. Sugar Bear came down with a sinus infection, Honey Boo Boo's sister Jessica came down with bronchitis, and and family friend Bobbie was hospitalized with the deadly H1N1 virus.

And so, as Honey Boo Boo and her close clan members were hurt in a wreck in Georgia, Alana Thompson was injured as were her mother, father and sister.

Meanwhile, Honey Boo Boo stars in "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," with Jan. 16 being the premiere date for the popular program's next season airing on TLC.
