Miranda Kerr spotted in neck brace after L.A. car accident

March 13, 2013|By Nardine Saad

Miranda Kerr injured her neck in a Los Angeles car accident Monday, which put the supermodel in a neck brace.

Kerr, 29, was spotted Tuesday wearing the medical collar, which she attempted to conceal with a patterned scarf. A driver reportedly smashed into her car on a L.A. freeway, TMZ reported. Her husband, actor Orlando Bloom, and their 2-year-old son, Flynn, were not with her during the accident, but Kerr was believed to have been riding with her assistant at the time.

"She is in a lot of pain, but really we are just glad it was not more serious," her representative told Australia's 9 News. "[Orlando is] taking very good care of her. He's an amazing husband. Luckily, Flynn wasn't in the car."

The Victoria's Secret angel reportedly suffered back injuries and whiplash as a result and was given MRI scans after the accident, the Daily Mail reported. TMZ said there are rumors that the other driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, but the rumors had not been confirmed. Reports did say that the driver could be charged with reckless driving.

Kerr has had a troubled history with car wrecks. She named her son Flynn Christopher as a tribute to her ex-boyfriend Christopher Flynn Middlebrook, who died in a car accident when Kerr was 15. She slipped into depression following the incident.

The Mango spokesmodel and founder of cosmetics line Kora Organics is supposed to return to her native Australia next month to unveil Qantas airlines' new uniforms designed by Martin Grant. 

Here's hoping she's feeling better by then.
