Kristin Cavallari Cutler, the wife of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, was reportedly involved in a car accident on Thursday afternoon and taken to the hospital.

According to TMZ, Cavallari’s vehicle was struck by another vehicle when she was driving outside of Chicago. E! News reports that Cavallari suffered a dislocated elbow, though her rep Jack Ketsoyan said she was “fine” and expected to be released rather quickly.

“She was hit by another driver in Chicago,” Ketsoyan said. “She is doing fine and will be discharged from the hospital shortly.”

Fortunately, none of Kristin’s and Jay’s three children were in the car at the time of the crash.

This past month or so has been very difficult for Cavallari, as her brother was recently found dead after he had gone missing.
