"The Goldbergs" star Hayley Orrantia put a 23-year-old man in ICU with a brain injury recently after T-boning his car at a high speed -- allegedly while taking her eyes off the road.
19-year-old Orrantia had been filming all night on Sept. 28, the day of the accident. The other driver's family says she ran a red light while checking the GPS on her phone, and then plowed into Ryan Houghton's car.
We're told Houghton was rushed to a nearby hospital with multiple injuries, including a traumatic brain injury, and remained in the ICU for a week. He is now in a rehab facility.
Houghton's family is currently soliciting donations online to help pay his medical bills.
Drugs and alcohol are believed NOT to have been factors in the crash. Law enforcement sources tell us Hayley was cited for running a red light.
Orrantia's lawyer tells TMZ, "The Police record will speak for itself, Hayley was not touching the GPS when she was driving and the allegations are coming from people who were not in the vehicle nor present at the scene at the time."
