CNN.com reports that Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and her family survived a car crash. Police Maj. John Davis told CNN that the accident happened yesterday when their family Chevrolet Suburban collided with a pickup truck at an intersection in Milledgeville, Georgia.
“It was really scary for us,” said “Mama June” Shannon, “since it was the first time any of us had ever been in a wreck,”
Alana’s father, “Sugar Bear” Thompson, was driving at the time of the accident according to the police. Injuries were not severe as none of the family members sought hospital treatment. In continuing with stating the obvious, CNN reports that paramedics checked the family at the scene of the accident.
Always putting family first, “Mama June” said through a statement from TLC:
“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.”
Pumpkin is the nickname of one of Alana’s older sisters.
The accident is still under investigation. No word if “Go Go Juice”, a combination of Red Bull and Mountain Dew and favorite drink of Reality TV star Honey Boo Boo, was the cause of the accident.
