Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, and the rest of the family, of the popular TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo , were involved in a serious car wreck on Monday night that left them all with minor injuries.
“It happened so quick,” Mama June told PEOPLE on Tuesday. “Before I could say watch out – boom – he had already hit us.”
Apparently 19-year-old Seth Cagle, was speeding, without his lights on, when he crashed into their 2012 Suburban. Alana and her family were taken, by ambulance, to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries. “Pumpkin went into a full panic attack and has severe bruising on her chest from the seat belt,” June explained. “Alana hit her head on the glass.” June suffered whiplash and back and neck sprains. Sugar Bear also suffered a back sprain
While they all remain sore, June says the top priority was to celebrate Pumpkin’s birthday. “We are definitely really sore today, but our top priority is to celebrate Pumpkin’s birthday,” June said in a statement. ” 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.”
The new season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will premiere January 16, on TLC.
