A Dancing With the Stars pro had a bad Monday. Dancer Mark Ballas was involved in a two-car accident in Los Angeles that landed him in the hospital.
According to TMZ, the ABC star was turning right when another car behind him didn’t slow down in enough time. As a result, the speeding car slammed into the back right side of his vehicle.
Sources for the gossip site explained that the five men in the vehicle who caused the accident confronted Ballas. They believed he was at fault. However, an eyewitness spoke with police at the scene and supported the dancer’s story.
Ballas’ girlfriend, BC Jean, took him to the hospital after he complained of whiplash and back pain. They went to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where Ballas was treated and released after being prescribed pain medication.
This has been a rough time for Ballas, who also suffered a dislocated shoulder just a day before the final show for DWTS. He was able to perform despite being in pain throughout the finale.
The DWTS veteran is currently promoting his single, “Get My Name,” which he first performed on the ABC competition show in May. He most recently sang the song on Access Hollywood Live last week and in Palm Springs over the weekend.
Ballas and his celeb partner, Candace Cameron Bure, came in third place on the most recent season of DWTS.
