Honey Boo Boo and her family just can’t catch a break! Last week, the TLC reality family suffered numerous injuries following a scary car accident.. and that was just days after returning from a turbulent trip to Disney Land that ended with three being hospitalized with illnesses. And now, to add insult to injury (literally), the cops are saying that patriarch Sugar Bear (Mike Thompson) was at fault in the crash.

According to Milledgeville Police, authorities have determined that Sugar Bear was the cause of the collision, as he made an unsafe left turn in the intersection, cutting off the truck that ultimately plowed into them. At first, there was word that the other vehicle didn’t have their lights on, but now Mike has admitted that the other car was visible, making him the responsible party for making a safe turn.

The good news: No charges will be filed against Sugar Bear, and the matter will be handled between insurance companies. In addition, though Pumpkin was back in the hospital earlier this week with a concussion and post-traumatic stress from the accident, she’s now been released and the family is recovering well.

Though we’re sorry to hear the situation could have been avoided, at least all parties weren’t seriously injured and there will be no major legal action. Here’s hoping things take a turn for the better for the Honey Boo Boo clan soon.
