Mayim Bialik thanks fans for concern after car crash

Mayim Bialik thanks fans for their concern after car crash

Actress Mayim Bialik is recovering and should return to work Wednesday after suffering severe injuries to her left hand during a car accident in Hollywood, a spokeswoman said.

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

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

On Twitter, Bialik sent a message saying she was "in pain but will keep all my fingers."

Bialik, the former star of TV's "Blossom" and currently appearing in CBS' "Big Bang Theory," was rushed to the hospital following the 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.
