In Pasadena, California, actress Haley Pullos was in a terrible car accident, and she has since been charged with DUI.
Reports say that the event happened on April 29. TMZ says that while Pullos was driving on the 134 Freeway, she swerved, jumped a dividing barrier, and started moving into traffic going the other way.
According to aceshowbiz.com, the star hit a car that was going about 60 mph in the end. After the crash, both cars were in a mess, as shown in a set of photos that the Pasadena Fire Department also posted on Twitter.
“Early this morning, rescue workers from the Pasadena Fire Department were called to the 134 Freeway/Orange Grove exit after a car accident. “After a reported head-on collision, when units arrived they found two cars involved and one person trapped,” the authorities wrote in a Facebook post.
It went on to say, “Firefighters got one person out of a car and took the people in both cars to the hospital and gave them medical care.” The reason is unknown, but it’s a good reminder to stay within the speed limit, not drink and drive, and never let passengers, phones, etc., keep you from paying attention to the road.
TMZ also said that the actress, who plays Molly Lansing-Davis on the soap opera, had to be pulled out of her car by Pasadena firemen, and officers later found edible marijuana and mini-bottles of tequila.
She was said to have slurred her words and smelled like alcohol, according to the accusation. She is also said to have fought with the rescue workers. When one fireman looked at her wounds, she yelled at him, “This is a $400 f**king shirt!”
After the crash, things got so bad that Pullos had to be sedated, and she got into a fight with the medical team. The other driver was taken to the hospital because he or she had serious injuries.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Haley talked about the car accident and said that she would miss a few shows of “General Hospital.”
“Unfortunately, I was in a car crash. I’m fine, but I’ll need a little bit of time to get better. She said, “I’ll be back as soon as I can.”
Holiday Mia Kriegel was chosen to briefly take the place of Pullos. It is said that Kriegel will make her first appearance on the show on May 22.
