Mayim Bialik hurt in Hollywood car crash

Mayim-Bialik-with-Cara-Santa-Maria.jpgTMZ's breathless first report said the TV actress, star of "The Big Bang Theory," would likely lose fingers after this afternoon's crash at La Brea and Hollywood Boulevard. But City News Service says she has since tweeted that she "will keep all my fingers." Her husband was doing the typing for her, apparently. The LAPD said in the story that the crash occurred during a left-turn and was almost a head-on. Her injuries were mainly due to the airbags, the LAPD spokeswoman said.

Bialik, a UCLA-trained neuroscientist and author of a parenting book, did not have her kids with her in the car. She was recently featured in a Zocalo conversation.
