The accident occurred in December 2004 when she clipped another car on the San Fernando Valley Freeway in California. One reporter joked that it was her first hit in years. In May 2009 she admitted that she had been addicted to prescription pain killers for the last several years. She revealed that she was in constant pain from debilitating injuries heaped on her body through cheerleading, dancing, a 1992 car accident, and a 1993 plane crash. She went on to say that her time in a detox program during November-December 2008 had allowed her to win her battle.
