Mark Ballas

Taken to Hospital

After Bad Car Crash

Mark Ballas
was in a bad car accident Monday afternoon and ended up in an L.A. hospital ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Mark was driving on an L.A. street, in the process of turning right, when another car was speeding in his lane, couldn't stop in time and slammed into his back right side.

Mark complained of whiplash and back pain.  His girlfriend took him to Cedars-Sinai Medial Center where doctors examined him and prescribed some pain meds.  Doctors told him the pain would get worse tomorrow, which isn't great news because Mark is scheduled to perform this week where he'll have a guitar strapped to his body as he sings and dances.

Mark's car was towed away.  We're told 5 guys in the car that hit him jumped out and accused him of causing the crash, but an eyewitness came forward and told cops it was not Mark's fault ... the other driver was speeding.

If he was turning right into a lane in which someone was speeding, it's Mark's fault. You do NOT have the right of way when you're turning; the cars on that road do. The other driver can certainly be cited, but only for speeding.

Did mark ever find his car at the mall when he forgot where he parked it and called the cops? All that time it was like to rows down from where he thought he parked it! LMFAO! #STUPIDA$$

Probably careless teenagers. Not usual for five grown men to be out speeding around.

Forget the car accident, the most shocking part of this story is that Mark has a girlfriend...
