LOS ANGELES - Actress Mayim Bialik has been hospitalized after she was injured in a car accident in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles.
Los Angeles police spokesman Richard French says the 36-year-old actress's left hand and thumb were cut severely. Another car had made a left turn and crashed into Bialik's vehicle shortly before noon Wednesday, activating the air bags.
Bialik was taken to a hospital. The three occupants of the other car suffered only minor injuries and were able to leave the scene on their own.
French says no citations were issued.
Bialik has been acting since childhood and currently stars in "The Big Bang Theory." She was recently nominated for an Emmy for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series.
