WWE.com has reported that ring announcer and diva Lilian Garcia was in a traffic accident on Friday afternoon.
The full statement is here:
SmackDown announcer Lilian Garcia remains at a Los Angeles hospital and is undergoing further testing after being struck by a car on Friday afternoon. Her condition is unknown.
Garcia suffered multiple contusions and lacerations on the left side of her body. Doctors immobilized Garcia's neck.
Garcia's husband, Chris, spoke to WWE.com and said that everyone is "praying for her full recovery."
Check back with WWE.com for updates on this developing story.
Garcia joined the WWE in 1999, and was the lead ring announcer for Raw for 10 years. She left the company briefly in 2009 to pursue a music career after releasing a successful album called "Quiero Vivir" while still with the WWE, only to return and become Smackdown's ring announcer in December of 2011.
Garcia first rose to prominence in the WWE after the September 11 bombings, when her rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" brought the WWE Universe together after the tragic happenings of that fatal day.
Other notable moments in her career include a brief love affair with the 500-pound Viscera and a Ballroom Gown vs. Tuxedo Match with fellow ring announcer Howard Finkel.
Let's hope Lilian makes a full and quick recovery from any injuries she has sustained.
