'Big Bang Theory' Star Injured in Traffic Collision TMZ, Deadline
One of the stars of CBS’s "The Big Bang Theory" suffered what was described as serious injuries in a traffic collision Wednesday, TMZ.com reports.
Deadline.com noted that production on the show was not expected to be impacted by the injuries to Mayim Bialik, who reportedly planned to return to work today.
The incident took place around noon in Hollywood, where the actress, traveling alone in a white Volvo, was struck at an intersection by a vehicle filled with Chilean tourists, reports TMZ.
Bialik injured her left hand and there were initial concerns that she might lose a finger, although the actress later tweeted she would keep all her fingers, the TMZ story adds.
Sources reported to TMZ that the scene included “tons and tons of blood everywhere” and that Bialik’s “finger was almost completely severed ... it was just hanging there.”
Emergency personnel responded to the scene and Bialik was treated at a nearby hospital, TMZ reported.
Bialik, currently up for an Emmy for her role on “Big Bang Theory,” is the former star of “Blossom.”
