Bachelor reunion closes with hospital trip for Bachelor alums

The Bachelor held a reunion and instead of an affair that involved former Bachelor contestants sharing show secrets, several cast members wound up in the hospital emergency room.

So it got us thinking: A funny thing happened on the way to The Bachelor reunion. OK, it may sound like the start of a bad joke, but we're guessing two of The Bachelorcontestants weren't laughing when they got into a car wreck last weekend after leaving The Bachelor reunion party in Hollywood.

The Bachelor season 3 cast

As reported on E! Online, season three Bachelor contestants Cristina Costa and Tiffany Sandles were in a minor accident when Cristina Costa lost control of her car while making a U-turn. Cristina Costa's car struck a lamp post which then fell onto the car.

Bachelor alum Cristina Costa underwent surgery for an arm injury and is recovering in the hospital. No charges have been filed against any of The Bachelor cast members. Local police performed DUI tests, but sources say Cristina Costa only had one glass of champagne earlier in the evening.

ABC is currently airing the latest installment of The Bachelorette, with a Men Tell All special scheduled to air on July 26.
