Mayim Bialik tweets that she is "doing OK. Grateful. And tired."

Actress Mayim Bialik returned to work on the "Big Bang Theory" on Thursday, a day after a car accident in Hollywood.

In a Twitter message on Thursday, she said she was "doing OK. Grateful. And tired."

In a prepared statement Wedneday, the actress' spokeswoman added that Bialik is grateful for the support from her fans.

"She thanks everyone for their concern," the statement said.

Bialik, the former star of TV's "Blossom," was rushed to the hospital following a collision shortly before noon Wednesday that caused both of her car's main air bags to deploy and left her with "severe lacerations to her left hand and thumb," Los Angeles Police Lt. Andrew Neiman said.

The 36-year-old actress was driving through Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue when her Volvo collided with a car turning west on Hollywood Boulevard, Neiman said.

Bialik was driving alone at the time of the collision, Neiman said. The other car was carrying a group of people from Chile.
