We are saddened to report that SmackDown ring announcer Lilian Garcia has been hospitalized after being struck by a car on Friday afternoon, WWE has announced.
The tenured WWE Diva was hit by the car in Los Angeles and hospitalized.
WWE.com reports that Lilian “suffered multiple contusions and lacerations on the left side of her body, but she is expected to make a full recovery”.
The website reports that her neck has been immobilized, likely in a neck brace.
More details here.
Obviously our thoughts and prayers go out to Lilian at this time.
UPDATE: WWE is now reporting that Garcia’s condition is “unknown” and has removed the line (still viewable above) about her making a full recovery.
Garcia’s husband, Chris Jozeph, a fashion designer, told the website that everyone is “praying for her full recovery”.
Garcia, last seen on Twitter in the early hours of Friday morning, was celebrating her husband’s birthday the night before the accident.
