“The Bold and Beautiful” actress Linsey Godfrey is expected to make a full recovery after a car careened into her while walking in West Los Angeles Monday, TheWrap has learned.
Godfrey, 26, plays Caroline Spencer on the CBS daytime soap opera.
The collision broke both of Godfrey’s legs. She was rushed to a local hospital and underwent surgery Monday night. She is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman told TheWrap Tuesday.
Around 2:25 p.m. Monday, two cars collided at the intersection of West Olympic Boulevard and Granville Avenue. One of the cars veered onto a sidewalk, smashing into Godfrey.
“Both drivers stayed at the scene,” the spokeswoman noted.
Police aren’t releasing the drivers’ ages or the vehicles involved in the collision as the investigation continues.
“We’re still not releasing how this collision happened. It appears to have been a ‘straight accident,’ meaning no arrests made and no citations [were] given,” the spokeswoman said.
Godfrey is no stranger to ailments. She underwent treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2006, USA Today reported.
CBS’s “The Young and the Restless” actress Adrienne Frantz tweeted, “@linseygodfrey I am sending you Angels and prayers! May you have a speedy recovery!”
Fellow “Restless” star and Godfrey’s fiance, Robert Adamson, joined in the updates and well wishes:
