OMG! Ciara, who’s pregnant in her third trimester, was involved in a tragic car accident in Los Angeles on March 10, when she was T-boned by another vehicle. The expecting singer was reportedly clutching her chest and shoulder after the crash, which makes us nervous. Get more details here!
This is the worst news ever! Ciara, who’s close to giving birth to her first child with husband Russell Wilson, was involved in a scary car accident in Los Angeles on March 10. TMZ claims the singer “was driving a white Mercedes SUV and was making a left turn when a grey Volvo SUV slammed into the front passenger side of the vehicle.”
Police and the fire department are said to have responded to the scene immediately, and Ciara was eventually seen “clutching her chest and shoulder” while walking around and talking on her phone. No word yet on whether or not the baby is okay, but if Ciara was walking around and talking on her phone then we think it’s safe to assume the baby is doing okay.
Plus, Parents.com says that when a pregnant woman is in a car accident, it’s not very likely the baby will be injured. “If you are in a car accident, your baby will probably be fine; infants are well protected within the muscular uterus and amniotic fluid. The main risk posed by any sort of car accident is separation of the placenta, which might cause you to experience vaginal bleeding, severe pain, or contractions,” the site reads. But even so, we can only imagine Ciara had her baby checked out by paramedics just in case.
“There was an accident that occurred this morning at 11:48 am on the corner of Wilshire Blvd and Barry in Los Angeles. LAPD can’t confirm who the drivers are because it’s car accident and we’re more concerned with the safety of those involved and conducting a thorough investigation rather than focusing on who the victims are,” the LAPD told HollywoodLife.com.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ciara. We hope she’s okay!
