‘Teen Mom’ Jenelle Evans and two passengers, including her 2-year-old son Jace, were taken by ambulance to a Wilmington, N.C., hospital this afternoon. Jenelle and an 18-year-old girl, who was featured on the ‘Teen Mom’ reality series, was sitting in the front with her were treated for minor injuries from sliding forward and hitting the dashboard, while Jace, who was strapped into his car seat in the back, was absolutely fine, according to Wilmington Police spokeswoman Officer Lucy Crockett.
“Fortunately it was not a serious crash,” Crockett said.
Evans tweeted afterward, “Just got into an accident :(“. Then she added another message, “LOOK TMZ.. Crashed into a pole in a parking lot going 10mph no drugs involved I’m clean. Jace is fine I’m injured in the hospital alone. My mom took Jace home and wouldn’t wait for me.”
On Teen Mom 2, Jenelle has found it tough to reconcile the responsibilities of motherhood with her love of partying. TMZ was first to report the crash, noting that police were investigating, but it didn’t appear to suspect that drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident.
Crockett told E! News that the official report on the crash wasn’t yet complete, but the investigation should be wrapped up by tonight. They have not determined yet whether Evans will be cited, she said.
The series, Teen Mom 2, is a spin-off of 16 and Pregnant, and sister show to the original Teen Mom. The show chronicles the lives of four girls from the second season of 16 and Pregnant as they navigate their first year of motherhood. In addition to motherhood, the series focuses on themes of their changing relationships between family, friends, and boys, while highlighting the struggles teenage mothers have to go through to raise their children.
