The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik was in a “minor car accident” on Wednesday, according to a statement from a rep. “She is doing fine and will be returning to work tomorrow,” continues the rep. “She thanks everyone for their concern.”

People reports that Bialik was struck while driving on Hollywood Blvd., and quotes an LAPD officer saying she incurred “a severe injury to her left thumb.” Despite initial reports that the Emmy-nominated actress may have lost a finger due to the wreck, however, Bialik tweeted the following statement: “(husband typing) In pain, but will keep all my fingers. If you wanna see pre accident me, watch The Soup tonight lol.”

This isn’t the first time a Big Bang actress had a scary brush with possibly losing an appendage. In 2010, Kaley Cuoco severely broke her left leg in a riding accident that nearly resulted in amputation and kept her off the show for several episodes.
