Sources close to the family tell us -- Sophie Simmons was sitting in infamous L.A. traffic when the car behind her failed to stop and plowed into her ... causing her to smash into the car in front of her. 

The accident caused a chain reaction that ended in a four-car wreck ... with Sophie right in the middle.

We're told Sophie was wearing her seat belt -- but the car's airbag didn't deploy -- and Sophie hit her head on the steering wheel.

She was taken to the hospital just to get checked out -- where she Tweeted a fun picture of her hospital bracelet and assured her fans that she was ok.

But her Dodge Charger wasn't as lucky ... we're told it's completely totaled.

It's nice to hear about a rock star's child that does not seem to involve drugs or alcohol, and the accident was not even her fault :) Good parenting Gene and Shannon!

Glad she's OK, this is a nice family, they have their priorities straight and have taught their children the right lessons in life...just wish some of the other "Celebrities" would do as well as Gene and his "wife" have.

I hope that she will be ok. As some of the other posters have mentioned; They are a good family and have kept their kids out of the usual hollywood or rock-n-roll drug addict lifestyle.

Gene had a good family and so did Shannon. It's great that they gave their kids the same morals and values.

Airbags are designed for deployment from front end collisions over 25 mph. A friend of mine rolled a car over and airbags didn't deploy.

Hopefully Sophie is hurt too badly!

Sophie is a cute girl. I have a question about her dad and just what the hell is politically correct these days and what isn't. I guess it depends on WHO is saying WHAT. Does anyone remember the segment of the show where Nick is checking the oil on Sophie's car and Gene comes out and asks what is he doing? When Nick said "checking the oil," Gene Simmons then replies "well,STOP, don't you know, THAT is what we have GENTILES for. Insinuating that any type of auto work is messy and left for the mess deserving Gentiles to do. If a non-jew had made THAT remark, replacing "Gentiles" with "jews," OMG, the show would be off the air, rabbis would be hollering from the mountain tops and I guess the Simon Wisenthal Center would be filing lawsuits. Does this bother anyone else except me?

Fuck Celebrities    

How could she possibly hit her head if she's wearing a seatbelt?


Easy answer... she wasn't.

Thank God she wasn't driving the "dumb" car that she had on "Family Jewels" She would either be seriously injured or DEAD had she been in that car. Don't know why anyone wants to drive a "death trap on wheels" in the first place. Those cars are DEFINITELY NOT "smart" cars and neither are the people that waste their money buying one.
