Bikini Model Chrissy Teigen

Tweets Taxicab Accident

From the Side of the Freeway

8/13/2011 4:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Chrissy Teigen was involved in a car accident this afternoon while riding in a cab on a freeway in New York City ... and she tweeted the entire ordeal.

Teigen -- whose boyfriend is a musician who goes by the name of John Legend -- apologized to anyone caught up in the traffic aftermath (which, based on the photo above, was quite significant).

Teigen seemed to be physically alright -- but she was quite angry at the driver of the car that hit her, posting a little mini-rant (see below) before eventually hailing another cab from the freeway.

Teigen fun fact -- she has a blog called where she writes about things like bacon, deep dish pizza, and cooking short ribs. So essentially, she's perfect.

I sure hope the editor of this post was being sarcastic. Her boyfriend is a little bit bigger than "a musician that goes by the name of John Legend". I think he's a little more well known than Chrissy. Ciao Ciao

There are no freeways in New York.

It's just highways and parkways.

Ooohh TMZ....your weekend working pea-ons never cease to hurt my eyes & brain with their terrible editing...or should I say their non-existant editing. While I can recall finding errors in your weekday postings, there is something about the Fri night/Sat/Sun posts that stick out....Always seeming to be hurriedly written, no care taken to proof read or hit the freaking spell check button once in awhile. It gets so annoying, where has professionalism gone these days.....Now i dont klaym two be perphect wen i tipe, but I am just a reader here, not a part of your staff. They need some writers training, asap.
