Let’s hope and do some praying Mark Ballas will be ok as today he was in a car accident and taken to the hospital afterwards. TMZ reports that Mark “was driving on an L.A. street, in the process of turning right, when another car was speeding in his lane.” Mark couldn’t stop in time and the car slammed into his back right side. Below is more. For the full story see TMZ.
Mark complained of whiplash and back pain. His girlfriend took him to Cedars-Sinai Medial Center where doctors examined him and prescribed some pain meds. Doctors told him the pain would get worse tomorrow, which isn’t great news because Mark is scheduled to perform this week where he’ll have a guitar strapped to his body as he sings and dances.
Mark’s car was towed away. We’re told 5 guys in the car that hit him jumped out and accused him of causing the crash, but an eyewitness came forward and told cops it was not Mark’s fault … the other driver was speeding.
UPDATE: No word on Mark Ballas’ condition after his accident for what was reported from TMZ, but, late last night, Shirley Ballas tweeted this picture that was taken of the two of them on Sunday. Keep them in your prayers all.
ETA2: We have a report from a fan in comments (thanks lana!) that Shirley tweeted Mark was going to be okay a couple of hours ago. She also thanked the fans for the concern. However, now the tweet is gone. Not sure what’s up?
ETA3: Mark Ballas tweeted that he is ok. Thank goodness. Below is his tweet….
Know y’all heard about the accident, thanks for all of the love and concern. I’m doin ok. No events will be affected.
