Report: "Dancing with the Stars'" Mark Ballas Injured in Car Crash
(LOS ANGELES) -- Dancing with the Stars pro Mark Ballas was involved a car accident in Los Angeles Monday that landed him in the hospital for a time, according to TMZ.
The gossip website says Ballas was making a right turn when another car traveling fast in the same lane failed to stop in time and struck the right rear side of the dancer's car. The car had to be towed away.
The website reports five guys riding in the car that struck Ballas reportedly jumped out and accused him of causing the crash, but an eyewitness told police the driver of the other car, not Ballas, was at fault.
TMZ says Ballas complained of whiplash and back pain and his girlfriend took him to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where doctors examined the dancer and prescribed painkillers.
ABC's Dancing with the Stars returns in the fall for its 19th season.
