Honey Boo Boo and members of her family were in a pretty bad car accident on the evening of Monday, Jan. 6, 2014, and it was bad enough to cause injuries. TMZ reports that Alana (Honey Boo Boo), Pumpkin, Jessica, and Mama June were all in the car that was being driven by Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson.

Sources have said that Honey Boo Boo and family were in their vehicle and waiting to turn left at a red light. As the light turned green and they started to turn, a truck speeding in the opposite direction crashed into them. The truck was driving without its lights on.

A statement was released by the family on Tuesday regarding the accident.

"It was really scary for us, since it was the first time any of us had ever been in a wreck," Mama June, Alana's mother, said in a statement to Fox411.com. "We are defeinitely 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.”

Reports state that members of the family were taken by ambulance to nearby hospitals. According to Mama June, EMTs were set to take the family to a hospital they weren't fond of so their bodyguard took them in an SUV to another hospital.

Honey Boo Boo was said to have a headache from the car crash and Mama June was said to have suffered some back injuries. Pumpkin is said to have severe chest injuries and Sugar Bear has a bruise on his back.

"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" is set to return to TLC on Jan. 16, 2014, with new episodes.
