Honey Boo Boo's Family Injured in Car Accident

(Originally written on 01/07/14): I was on Facebook earlier this evening and learned that Alana Thompson (AKA "Honey Boo Boo Child") and her family were in a car accident. It wasn't super-serious where people died or anything, but it sounded serious enough that the family was pretty banged up. Here is the message that June Shannon (AKA "Mama June") posted on Facebook:
OH K I WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW YES WE WAS IN A CAR WRECK LAST NIGHT WE R OH K ALANA HIT HER HEAD ON THE DOIR WINDOW AND IS HAVING HEADACHES ME MAMA JUNE I HAVING BAD HEADACHES AND ALOT OF PAIN IN MY BACK ..SUHARBEAR IS OH K HIS BACK WAS HURTING BUT BETTER TODAY....PUMPKIN HAD A SEVERE PANIC ATTACK AT THE WRECK AND AFTER THE HOSPITAL VISIT THE DETERMINED SHW HAS SEVERE BRUISING IN HER CHEST AND IT HARD FOR HER TO BREATH LIKE SHE SAUD WGAT A WAY TO REMEMBER TURNING 14 TODAY AND JESSICA WAS IN THE VERY BACK AND WAS NOT HURT ...ANNA AND KATILYN WASNT WITH US LUCKY ENOIGH ...BUT BANGED UP AND ALL CAUSE PUMPKIN HAS BEEN STILL VERY UPSET SINCE THE WRECK SO WE R GOING TO DINNER LIKE WE PLANNED TO CELEBRATE FOR BDAY...THANKS FOR YOUR THOUGHTS AND CARING FOR US WE WILL B OH K CAR CAN B HOPEFULLY FIXED BUT GREAT THE OTHER GUY WASNT HURT ...THE TRUE STORY LIKE I REPORTED TO TMZ WE WAS IN MILLEDGEVILLE WE WAS AT THE RED LIGHT IT TURNED GREEN WE WAS TURNING LEFT TO PAY OUR LIGHT BILL WE LOOKED UP I SAID LOOK THAT PERSON DONT HAVE HEADLIGHTS ON AND WAS GOING VERY FAST I TOLD SUGARBEAR WATCH OUT BUT THE TRUCK WAS ON US AND DONE HIT US B4 WE KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON ...I WAS VERY WONDERED BOUT THE OTHER GUY TOO AS HE WAS ONLY 19 YRS AND WAS WORRIED BOUT WHAT HIS PARENTS WOULD SAY ...
Keep in mind, nobody ever said that Mama June is the greatest speller! Let me break down her message:

The family was in a car accident last night and everyone is generally okay. Alana hit her head on the door window and is suffering from headaches. Mama June is also suffering from headaches and is also suffering from back pain. David Thompson (AKA "Sugar Bear") was suffering from back pain yesterday, but is doing better today. Lauryn Shannon (AKA "Pumpkin") had a severe panic attack at the scene of the accident. Hospital staff later noted severe bruising in her chest (Jon's note: presumably from her seatbelt), which made it difficult for her to breath. Jessica Shannon (AKA "Chubbs") doesn't appear to be injured from Mama June's message, though US Weekly indicates that she was in the vehicle with the others.

They were reportedly turning left as a stoplight when another vehicle (driven by a 19-year-old guy) slammed into their vehicle. This driver reportedly did not have his headlights on at the time of the accident. He was apparently not injured in the accident.

Like I said, it doesn't appear that anyone was seriously injured. Hopefully everyone will continue to heal up speedily!

Updated 01/08/14: Mama June posted an update on their Facebook page last night:
UPATE : ALANA HEADACHES R GONE AND SHE IS DOING BETTER...AS FOR ME MAMA JUNE I'M STILL VERY SORE WITH MY HEAD AND BACK ...PUMPKIN IS STILL HAVING DIFFICULTY WITH HER CHEST BRUISING AND NOW IS HAVING SEVERE HEADACHES...SUGARBEAR BACK IS STILL SORE I WISH WE WOULD ALL B BETTER QUICK BUT LIKE EVERYONE TOLD US THE FEW DAYS AFTER WE WOULD FEEL IT AND MEAN R WE BUT PUSHING THROUGH WILL B GETTING CHECKED AGAIN IN COUPLE DAY TO B ON PROTECTIVE SIDE I HOPE THE OTHER DRIVER IS OH K AND THIS WILL B OVER SOON ALL I AM TRUELY CONCERNED WITH RIGHT NOW IS GETTING MY FAMILY ESPECIALLY THE KIDS (PUMPKIN) PAIN FREE AND ME AND SUGARBEAR TOO...AS Y'ALL KNOW MY KIDS AND FAMILY R MY LIFE AND I HATE TO SEE ANY OF THEM SUFFER NOTHING ELSE MATTERS BUT FOR PPL WONDERING THE CAR IS REPAIRABLE BUT NOT MY CONCERN RIGHT NOW...
Translation: Honey Boo Boo is doing much better and her headaches are gone. Mama June still has a sore back and head. Pumpkin is still suffering from severe headaches and she still has severe bruising across her chest. Sugar Bear still has a sore back. And it seems like the other driver is feeling okay.

It seems like Pumpkin got the worst of the injuries. The family is requesting ongoing prayers for the pain to go away.
