Mayim Bialik was seriously injured Wednesday in a car accident in Los Angeles.

Bialik, 36, was driving in L.A. when a car with three tourists from Chile turned into her vehicle at Hollywood Boulevard and caused the crash, LAPD Sgt. Monte Houze tells PEOPLE.

"From what I was told, there was a lot of blood at the scene," says Houze.

He says Bialik, known for her roles on Blossom and The Big Bang Theory suffered "a severe injury to her left thumb" and was taken to a local hospital. The tourists were not cited or detained.



But the star won't be losing a digit. On Wednesday afternoon, Bialik posted a message on Twitter saying, "(husband typing) In pain but will keep all my fingers. If u wanna see pre accident me watch The Soup tonight lol."



TMZ first reported the accident.
