Brooke Burke-Charvet did not have a very good day on Wednesday because she, unfortunately, crashed her very expensive Maserati sports car into a fence in Calabasas, California.

According to Us Weekly, there is visible damage to her car and skid marks on the street that show where she lost control of the vehicle. So what caused the 42-year-old beauty to lose control?

According to reports from TMZ, Burke-Charvet said the crash was the result of a faulty steering wheel and nothing scandalous like rumors may have suggested. The former Dancing With the Stars host took to Twitter to tell fans what really happened.

"Rough morning. Accident on my wAy 2 work. Tons of cops & of course photogs, TMZ will have fun with this one. Poor Mazeratti..yes I was sober (sic)," she tweeted.

"Btw. Of course officers had me do a sobriety test. Thx CHP for taking care of all of us, too bad the photogs blow it out of proportion (sic)."

"I'm totally fine tweeties. What an exaggeration TMZ. Hilarious headlines, boy-what-you-guys-will-do. Just an accident. No biggie (sic)."

"Thx 4 all your concern. I'm totally fine. Scary accident but not so bad. Today is my lucky day actually #grateful (sic)," she added.

According to E! News, the star's rep said, "She is fine." And apparently, she wasted no time before heading back to work on her new project Melissa & Joey.

A source also revealed to the publication that "something happened with [the] steering and she had to make the choice of going into oncoming traffic or go towards the fence off the road. She chose the latter."

We're glad Burke-Charvet was not injured during the incident, even though she won't be driving her Maserati for a while.
