On Monday night, Honey Boo Boo and her family were hospitalized following a car crash in which the family’s truck was hit by some a**hole that ran a red light in McIntyre, Georgia. According to TMZ,
“Sugar Bear has a contusion on his back, Mama June has back injuries, Honey Boo Boo has a headache, and Pumpkin has severe chest bruises.”
Mama June Thompson also told TMZ that the car in which they were driving was nearly new, and they had not completed their payments on it since purchasing it six-months ago [insert face-palm here]. The family was not at fault for the accident, considering they were turning right on a green light when the truck bulldozed into them. The driver of the truck was nineteen-years-old, in which Mama June expressed a great deal of concern for. The incident occurred a day before their fourteen-year-old daughter, Lauryn’s (aka Pumpkin), birthday. They insisted that they would not let the incident ruin they party plans, however, TMZ also notes that,
“Lauryn is also having panic attacks following the traumatic crash as she has severe bruising on her chest.”
The crash followed a series of other distressing situation that the Thompson family endured over the holidays, including their house being burgled of all of it’s Christmas decorations in late December. Pictures of the damaged SUV have since surfaced, and their not as bad as one would think would come out of a T-boning accident.
