Jennifer Lawrence Got into Car Accident over Excessive Obsession with Honey Boo Boo

Hunger Games’ actress, Jennifer Lawrence, was reportedly involved in a vehicle mishap over her obsession with the TLC reality star, Honey Boo Boo.

As reported, Lawrence admitted that one of her most embarrassing moments was when she got into a car accident after hallucinating that she just saw Honey Boo Boo along her way.

During her interview with The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno, Lawrence said that the incident took place in Georgia during a breast cancer parade which was attended by people wearing pink sashes labeled with the word ‘boobs.’

Apparently, Lawrence thought that the sashes were saying Boo Boo. Consequently, her eyes started searching for Honey Boo Boo among the people at the scene while craning her neck until she saw a little girl whom she thought was the reality TV star.

Unfortunately for Lawrence, she ended up smashing her vehicle into another car in front of her. Therefore, to her shame, she was forced to explain to the other driver what really happened before she crashed his car.

Lawrence further claimed that she sincerely asked for an apology to the other driver and its family and she was glad that the family understands her obsession over the reality TV child star.

The 22-year-old actress had her lead roles in TBS’s ‘The Bill Engval Show’ and the independent films, ‘The Burning Plain’ and ‘Winter’s Bone’ and at the age of 20, she was the second youngest actress to be nominated for Best Actress in the Academy Award. In 2011, she also played a major role in the film ‘X-men: First Class’ and gained a wider recognition after playing another major role—this time as the lead female actress in ‘The Hunger Games’ movie. She was in fact referred to as the most talented young actress in America for her role in the said hit movie.

Ironically, to the surprise of a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, he concluded that such big stars likewise got star struck and obsessed with other celebrities just like any ordinary people. Nevertheless, he is somehow grateful that nothing serious happened as a result of the young actress’ celebrity obsession.

Country Singer Sammy Kershaw Thankful for Surviving Tour Bus Accident

tour bus
American country music artist, Sammy Kershaw, was reportedly involved in a bus accident in Tennessee last week.

According to news reports, Kershaw was thankful for being alive following a bus accident that occurred last November 2 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Kershaw was one of the passengers in a tour bus that was struck by another vehicle driven by an unidentified woman after he and his band performed in Nocoma, Texas.

As a result of the collision, the woman sustained injuries and hospitalized while Kershaw and nine other members of his band were left a bit shaken up and traumatized. Reports said that the injuries they sustained were not enough to warrant medical treatment.

On the other hand, the tour bus was left with severe damages while the woman’s car was said to be totaled.

The day after the incident, Kershaw took to his Facebook account to inform his fans that he is alright. Moreover, in his statements which were quoted below, he said:

“Thanking the good Lord up above. We were in a pretty bad bus accident last night in Nocona, Texas but everyone is okay including the lady that ran into the side of the bus. The lady’s car is a total loss and the bus is down for an undetermined amount of time, but those are the just things. We can replace those. Amen.”

"I understand she (the female driver) just had a broken ankle in a couple of places and her face bruised up from the air bag and it really could have been a bad situation," Kershaw adds. "I travel with a lot of guardian angels all my life…but cars and buses and all that other stuff is just things and things can be replaced."

Incidentally, the good news is that the country singer has not cancelled any concerts following the incident.

Kershaw has scored major hits in his career as a country singer. He has released ten studio albums, which earned three RIAA platinum certifications and two gold certifications. In fact, among his singles, more than 25 songs have entered Top 40 spots on the Billboard Hot Country Songs, including his number one hit song, ‘She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful.’

Meanwhile, in his statement, a Los Angeles automobile accident attorney here said the female driver is still fortunate for only sustaining non-life threatening injuries considering that she collided with a larger vehicle. That is something to be really grateful for, especially for the music artist’s party, he added.

Costa Concordia Captain Files Wrongful Termination Claim

After the captain of the Italian cruise ship that capsized last January was charged in connection with the multiple deaths after abandoning his sinking ship, he is now suing for wrongful termination.

Apparently, Francesco Schettino recently filed a wrongful termination claim after he was charged with manslaughter and abandoning ship as it was sinking at Tuscany last January 13.

The said lawsuit was actually an appeal following Schettino’s job dismissal. According to his lawyer, the former captain is simply practicing his legal rights as a worker.

Schettino was blamed for the 32 deaths of passengers and crew of the cruise ship loaded with 4,000 passengers and crew members.

Previous reports claimed that the former captain brought the cruise ship too close to shore, which caused it to hit a coral reef, lean on one side, and sink. Subsequently, he abandoned the ship while passengers were still trying to flee from the sinking boat.

At present, Costa Cruises, the company that owns the capsized ship, remains focused on the process of removing the wrecked ship, which was expected to be totally cleaned up by January next year. Meanwhile, the company is currently looking for solutions to improve the time frame of the wreckage removal.

So far, reports claim that the company is yet to comment on Schettino’s lawsuit. 

On a related note, a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer explains that wrongful death claims stem from a number of contexts ranging from car accidents, construction accidents, slip-and-fall, and drowning accidents.

When such incidents occurred, the survivors or beneficiaries of the victims or the decedents are entitled to receive compensation from the person or party liable for the incident. Compensations include immediate expenses related to the death, loss of benefits, loss wages, pain, suffering, and other damages, he added.
