TLC reality star Honey Boo Boo and her family were injured in a car accident Monday night in their hometown of McIntyre, Ga., TMZ first reported.

Sugar Bear was driving a Suburban with Honey Boo Boo, Mama June, Pumpkin and Jessica, all stars on TLC’s hit show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” set to start into its third season on Jan. 16.

The family’s SUV was trying to make a left turn when it was hit by a truck moving in the opposite direction, sources told TMZ. The driver of the other vehicle was reportedly speeding with his lights turned off.

“We’ve only had that Suburban for 6 months and it’s not even paid off yet,” Mama June told TMZ.

Pumpkin told TMZ that she has severe bruises on her chest and has been suffering from panic attacks since the accident.

Sugar Bear has a contusion on his back, Mama June is suffering from sprains in her neck and back, and Honey Boo Boo had a headache from hitting her head against a passenger window.
