Fans are showing their support for Katey Sagal after the Sons of Anarchy alum was hit by a car while crossing a street in Los Angeles. News of the incident was first reported by TMZ, which reported the incident occurred at 11:40 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14 when a Tesla making a left turn apparently didn't see Sagal and "tagged her," leaving Sagal with minor injuries. Sagal was transported to a local hospital, and the driver of the vehicle, who did stop and assist the actress, was not issued a citation for the case.
Thankfully, Sagal's injuries seemed to be minor, with her husband, Kurt Sutter, even poking a little fun as his wife recovers. Addressing the scary incident in an Instagram post over the weekend, Sutter shared that his wife is "the only one bringing in money right now... so I'll be picking her up from the hospital later." He joked that he would be "taking her to that Dancing With the Stars audition." At this time, Sagal herself has not addressed the collision, which reportedly remains under investigation, according to the latest update.
The collision came just ahead of Sagal's return to The Conners as Louise Goldufski. Sagal first rose to fame playing Peg Bundy on the hit '80s sitcom Married... with Children. She later starred as Gemma Teller on FX's Sons of Anarchy from 2008-2014. More recently, she led the ABC drama Rebel, which aired for one season before it was canceled. As news of the Oct. 14 incident broke, fans of the actress were quick to take to social media to react, with many sending Sagal wishes for a speedy recovery.
