WGXA has learned that central Georgia's reality TV star Honey Boo Boo and her family were in a car accident Monday night.
WGXA received the police report which indicates the accident took place Monday night around 8 p.m. in Milledgeville at the intersection of North Columbia Street and Hammock Road.
David Thompson, better known as Sugar Bear, and the rest of the family, were preparing to turn left at the intersection of Hammock Road and North Columbia Street. The oncoming vehicle, driven by 19-year-old Seth Cagle of Milledgeville, did not have its headlights on. Both vehicles sustained moderate damage in the collision.
June Shannon, better known as Mama June, and her daughter Lauren, complained of minor injuries. EMS was called to the scene but no one was transported to the hospital by ambulance. The family says a bodyguard later took them to the hospital for evaluation. June says members of their family are very sore and complaining of headaches. Alana hit her head in the accident and is also dealing with headaches after the accident.
"It was really scary for us, since it was the first time any of us had ever been in a wreck," "Mama June" Shannon said in a statement.
"We are definitely really sore today, but our top priority is to celebrate Pumpkin's birthday," the mother said. "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 accident is still under investigation.
