Kris Allen

Seriously Injured

In Car Crash

breaking news

0102_kris_allen_instagram_hospital"American Idol" winner Kris Allen and his pregnant wife Katy were in a head-on collision car crash on New Year's Day.

Allen, Katy and their dog, Zorro, were all in the car.  Kris suffered a broken arm. Katy suffered some injuries. The dog is fine.

It's unclear how far along Katy is in her pregnancy, and there's no word if the accident had any impact on it.

Kris sounds optimistic about the baby though -- he tweeted, "Thank you @Ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family safe ... and the little one we have on the way safe."

Kris's mom, Kimberly, says Kris is in a lot of pain and may not play guitar for awhile.

Adam Lambert should have won Idol that year but when hints of his gayness came put-who didn't see that one?-the teeny voters switched their allegiance over night to Kris. Wish him no ill will, glad he, wife, and baby-and puppy-are fine but in that contest at that place in time, Adam Lambert was the best entertainer.

Glad Kris, Katy, Zorro, and baby in waiting are all safe. Hoping for a speedy recovery and successful surgery. THis could have ended so much worse. Thank goodness they were wearing seat belts and the air bags deployed.

Pretty soon we'll be seeing people "tweeting" from their death beds giving the blow by blow of how long they have to go until they head off into the great beyond. Why do we need to know every single facet of your life???? Do we care??? I think not.

Glad to hear that he, his wife, baby on the way, and dog are okay. But uh, if a broken arm is now considered seriously injured... I should be dead.

Am I supposed to be upset about this? I wouldn't watch AI if its only competition was a "Little Rascals" marathon.
