HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (KTLA) -- Emmy-nominated actress Mayim Bialik was back on set Thursday, a day after she was rushed to the emergency room after a car crash.
In a Twitter message on Thursday, she said she was "doing OK. Grateful. And tired."
Bialik, the former star of TV's "Blossom" and currently appearing in CBS' "Big Bang Theory," was rushed to the hospital shortly before noon Wednesday.
The crash caused both of her car's main air bags to deploy and left her with "severe lacerations to her left hand and thumb," Los Angeles Police Lt. Andrew Neiman said.
The 36-year-old actress was driving through Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue when her Volvo collided with a car turning west on Hollywood Boulevard, Neiman said.
Bialik was driving alone at the time of the collision, Neiman said. The other car was carrying a group of people from Chile.
Bialik sent a message Wednesday on Twitter saying she was "in pain but will keep all my fingers."
