Honey Boo Boo Family in Serious Traffic Accident
Traffic accidents happen all over the world all the time. But when a TV personality is involved, it highlights the fact that these incidents really can affect anyone.
On January 6th, the family from popular TLC TV show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo were all taken to hospital after their Chevrolet Suburban was hit at an intersection in Milledgeville, Ga. While the driver, ‘Sugar Bear’ Mike Thompson and 3 of the passengers (‘Mama June’ Shannon, Alana ‘Honey Boo Boo’ Thompson and Jessica ‘Chubbs’ Shannon) were later released from hospital, Lauryn ‘Pumpkin’ Shannon remains under the watchful eye of doctors. The star of the show, Alana, cancelled some of her scheduled appearances so that she could spend more time with her sister Lauryn, who was reported to have headaches and buckling legs after the accident.
There is a dispute over whose fault the accident was. According to the police, the father of the family, turned left at a green light. However, the 19 year old driver of the Chevrolet truck that hit the family’s vehicle said that he too had a green light. He says that Thompson had actually cut him off.
