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.

Airbags don't deploy when you're hit from behind, no matter what the speed. I was in a similar accident 2 years ago, car hit me at 35mph I was stopped at a red light. No air bag deployed, car got totaled, and I am still recovering.

Describe for me how something can be "totaled" any OTHER way than "completely"? "Completely destroyed" is another example of poor writing.

why that horrible pic of her?? Its a pic of her looking wasted which to someone who didn't read the article would jump to a conclusion that the accident was her fault. She is a bright pretty girl, don't make her look nasty for the attention to the article.

As I read this I couldn't help but think of how this will be just another cause for Gene Simmons to sue someone. It's sad when your first thoughts of someone are as a money grabbing ****. I bet he sues the other driver for hitting Sophie's car, Chrysler for installing faulty airbags, the airbag manufacturer for producing a faulty airbag, etc. Sophie seems sweet and I hope she's ok.

Well it is easy to say that Dodge should be expecting lawsuit papers from Gene. I am glad she is OK though.

People who made the comments about the Smart Car should do some research before dissing it. The Smart Car is made by a division of Mercedes Benz and has a roll cage design like a race car to protect the occupants in a crash and is one of the safest vehicles on the road. I am glad Sophie is alright.

Glad she is ok!!!! : ) Hope she goes to Dr. to make sure there is no neck, head or back trauma that may set in AFTER the fact, they can't always initially find anything right away...ALSO hope she treats herself to a really good back massage to relieve the tension in the muscles..
