Former “Blossom” star and current “The Big Bang Theory” actress Mayim Bialik was involved in a car accident in Hollywood this afternoon and apparently the actress is very close to losing her finger as a result.
On the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and La Brea, in the most crowded notoriously tourist area of Hollywood, the actress was struck in the middle of the intersection by a car filled with tourists from Chile.
Welcome to Hollywood, Chilean tourists - she may not be Lindsay Lohan, but sadly, all our celebrities really do get in car accidents all the time.
An eyewitness at the scene told Hollyscoop that they could not tell who was at fault in the accident, but judging from the photo, it seems like Mayim's car took most of the heat. Also, that is one of the hardest intersections to cross in Hollywood. There are groups of tourists on nearly every corner and crosswalk.
The eyewitness told us that the accident was "extremely loud" and saw Mayim "crying really hard" and that there was "blood everywhere." Someone at the scene ran into a nearby Italian restaurant asking for a towel to wrap her hand because according to TMZ's, Mayim is in danger of losing her finger.
“Her finger was almost completely severed, it was just hanging there,” says the source.
The actress was rushed to a nearby hospital but as of now we are unsure which hospital she is at.
This accident comes less than an hour after Mayim taped an episode of "The Soup" with Joel McHale.
"I'm going to be on The Soup tonight," she wrote on Facebook earlier today, "reviewing reality TV highlights. Teaser: the clips they scripted for me include a bit of raunchy humor. Wish me luck and tune it tonight!"
