Several members of the family including Honey Boo Boo were taken to the hospital for injuries.

Reports state that the dad of the family, Sugar Bear was driving and was taking a left hand turn when a truck driving in the other direction rammed into them.

Sugar Bear said the driver, 19 year old Seth Cagle did not have his lights on but Cagle who spoke to E! disagrees;

"We both had the green light. He [Sugar Bear] made a left hand turn which crossed the lane and I was traveling and that is when I struck him because he cut me off. He made a left hand turn when crossing on-coming traffic—that is when he struck me and I struck him. I was headed straight."

The police report said both of the drivers had a green light but Sugar Bear said without the lights on Cagle's truck, he did not see him coming and that is when Cagle rammed into his vehicle.

Cagle insists the lights were on automatic but no one could prove that ss when the police arrived his car was already parked and off.

Seth also said an ambulance was near when the accident occurred and checked out a member of the Honey Boo Boo clan;

"There happened to be an ambulance around right when the accident happened, and one of the girls got checked out and they left. I don't know which one it was. The paramedics left when the police got there and we all stayed until the police arrived and then told us we could go."

The two vehicles involved each has some damage, including dents, and scratches with Cagle's front bumper being broken.

Honey Boo Boo, Sugar Bear, Mama June, and two of her sisters, Jessica and Pumpkin were all treated at the hospital later and released.

Mama sprained her neck and back, Sugar had a bruised back,Pumpkin had some bruises on her chest and Honey Boo Boo's head was checked because she hit it on the window in the crash.

June issued a statement to EW and posted pictures on her Facebook page showing the family celebrating Pumpkin's birthday regardless of them being hurt from the crash;

"As many of you have heard 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. 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."

Mama June also posted the information on Facebook about her side of the accident;
