Miranda Kerr’s Car Crash Leaves Her With Neck Injury [Report]

Miranda Kerr Car Crash

Miranda Kerr was in a car crash on Monday. The 29-year-old Victoria’s Secret model escaped without any major injuries, but she was still spotted sporting a neck brace the next day.

Kerr’s car was apparently hit by another on a Los Angeles freeway while she was riding with an assistant.

The model’s spokeswoman, Annie Kelly, stated that Kerr “is in a lot of pain but really, we are just glad that it was not more serious.”

Kerr’s two-year-old son was not in the car at the time of the crash. The Australian model apparently underwent MRI scans after the accident, though there was no word on why. There did not seem to be any visible injuries on Kerr, other than the neck brace.

Miranda Kerr’s spokeswoman added of the car crash aftermath, “[Orlando is] taking very good care of her. He’s an amazing husband. Luckily, Flynn wasn’t in the car.” Kerr apparently suffered whiplash and a back injury from the incident.

There were reports that suggested the driver of the other car was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Other reports said that the driver could be charged with reckless driving.

Miranda Kerr is no stranger to car crashes. Her ex-boyfriend, Christopher Flynn Middlebrook, died in a car accident when the model was just 15. She slipped into a depression following the wreck. The model’s son, Flynn, is named after her ex as a tribute — one that hubby Orlando Bloom appears not to mind.


Kerr has not yet commented publicly on the accident. No specific details have been released about the wreck either, other than it took place on a freeway in Los Angeles. Understandably, the Victoria’s Secret model tried to cover up the unsightly neck brace during her outing on Tuesday by using a scarf.

The model is set to return to Australia next month to help debut the new Qantas flight attendant uniform. Hopefully, the after-effects of Miranda Kerr’s car crash will clear up before then.
