Mayim Bialik is reportedly in the hospital after a scary car accident this afternoon. The Blossom actress was at the corner of Hollywood and La Brea around noon today when her white Volvo was plowed into by another vehicle, allegedly containing tourists from Chile. Authorities were quickly called, but by the time they arrived, Bialik was reportedly bleeding very heavily from her hand.
According to TMZ, she’s currently receiving treatment in a Los Angeles hospital, but there is a very real chance she may lose her left thumb. There’s no word on how losing the digit might affect her quality of life or whether a possible amputation could lead to other complications, but those details should begin emerging within the next few hours. For the time being, all involved are simply hoping Bialik will escape the incident with as little damage as possible.
Early reports indicate the tourists were at fault for the accident when they turned their vehicle into the actress’. According to People, they were not detained or cited, however, which means drugs and alcohol were not a factor.
We’ll keep you updated as details continue to break in this case. Until then, Pop Blend’s thoughts go out to Mayim and her family in this time of need.
