Former Hills star Kristin Cavallari hospitalised after car crash
New mum Kristin Cavallari is recovering in hospital after she was involved in a car crash near Chicago, Illinois on Thursday.
The former The Hills star suffered a dislocated elbow after the car she was travelling in was struck by another vehicle, and she was questioned about the incident by police officers after receiving treatment at a local medical centre, reports TMZ.com.
Cavallari's three children, including eight-week-old daughter Saylor, were not with mum at the time of the collision, and her husband, American football star Jay Cutler, has since rushed to his wife's hospital bedside.
The news emerges weeks after the 29-year-old mourned the death of her brother, Michael, who went missing before the Thanksgiving holiday in November (15) and was subsequently found dead in Utah.
Cavallari previously noted although she managed to go out for a bit on New Year's Eve, she was still overcome with grief while calling in 2016.
"Last night was the second time I've put makeup on in over 5 weeks and left the house (besides the grocery store and taking Cam to school)," she wrote on Instagram on Friday (01Jan16), alongside a photograph of her and spouse Jay as she held a cocktail while wearing a black ensemble.
"Even though I shed a few tears, it was a really nice night and felt good to be out. 2015 brought my sweet, baby girl but it also took my brother's life. Hoping for no extreme highs and lows this year. Happy new year, everyone."
