Las Vegas entertainer Pia Zadora is in intensive care after suffering a serious head injury Thursday evening after falling from a golf cart near her home in Summerlin, Nevada, her husband, Mike Jeffries, confirmed to the Las Vegas Sun.

Jeffries said his 60-year-old wife has been in and out of consciousness at the University Medical Center where she is being treated.

The singer is being treated for dangerous bleeding on her brain and a compound fracture of her right ankle.

According to Jeffries, Zadora fell from the cart driven by her 17-year-old son, Jordan, when he made a left turn on a street near the family’s house about 5:45 p.m. Thursday.

Due to her injuries, performances this weekend and next at Piero’s Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas have been canceled.

Zadora made her mark as a 10-year-old original cast member of the Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof, alongside Zero Mostel.

In 1982, she won the Golden Globe New Star of the Year award for her work in the thriller Butterfly. Other credits include Hairspray, Troop Beverly Hills and Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult.

More recent endeavors include a new musical review directed by award-winning producer Jeff Kutash, Pia Reloaded, which honors her decades-long career.
