Kris Allen

Seriously Injured

In Car Crash

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.

The accident occurred on January 1st, not on New Year's Eve, WYATSPOPPA. (How strange that you just assumed he "took his pregnant wife out on New Year's Eve" -- what a very sexist statement). Also, it was a head-on collision, and their car was mangled, apparently beyond repair. Thus, even though the injuries weren't major, the accident was serious. I hate AI, but I've actually liked the music put out by Kris Allen & Chris Daughtry. Lambert's okay, I guess, but many people think HE shouldn't have made the top 5. Opinions are subjective, and mature people can respect the opinions of others.

Sounds like a new type of corporate sponsorship and free publicity for a singer without a career.

I would like to know who the s*** is that took this photo, obviously this was taken at the scene while he is on a stretcher and what are the ethics of tmz publishing this. Disgusting behavior!
