    Looks like Honey Boo Boo and her family members are on the mend. 

    After the 8-year-old reality star (real name Alana Thompson) and her family were involved in a bad car accident on Monday, Jan. 6, Honey Boo Boo's older sister Jessica "Chubbs" Thompson was spotted heading back to school this morning.

    The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo stars, including Mama June, Sugar Bear (who was driving the vehicle), Pumpkin, Chubbs and the pint-size beauty queen were hit by a pickup truck in Milledgeville, Ga., as they were making a left turn at a green light.

    No one suffered any serious injuries in the wreck, according to the police report, although the family went to the hospital after the crash, complaining of back pain and shortness of breath.

    But Chubbs but on a brave face Wednesday morning as the rest of the family stayed home and recovered, appearing in good spirits while getting picked up for school by a pal.

    Carrying two bottles of Gatorade in order to stay hydrated, the 17-year-old TLC star exited her Georgia home wearing a teal hoodie, jeans and tennis shoes.

    Shortly after the crash Mama June issued a statement, thanking fans for their continued support. "As many of you have heard we were in a car accident last night. It was really scary for us, since it was the first time any of us had ever been in a wreck," she said. "We are definitely really sore today, but our top priority is to celebrate Pumpkin's birthday. She turned 14 today and no matter how sore we feel we are going to go out and celebrate. As always we want to thank everyone for their support and well wishes."

    According to the police report, both Sugar Bear and the other driver, 19-year-old Seth Cagle, had a green light, but Sugar Bear says he didn't see the truck coming because the headlights weren't on, however the truck driver states his lights were on an automatic setting. Since the car was parked when authorities arrived on the scene, they could not confirm whether or not the lights were on.

    Both cars had moderate damage after the collision. Per the police report, Sugar Bear's SUV "consisted of dents, scratches, and crush damage to the front grill and driver's side headlight, as well as a crumpled hood," while the damage to Cagle's truck "consisted of cracks and dents to the front bumper, as well as damage to the grill area. A section of the front bumper had also been broken off the vehicle."

    Mama June later took to Facebook to update fans on the family's health condition, writing, "OH K I WANTED TO LET EVERYONE KNOW YES WE WAS IN A CAR WRECK LAST NIGHT WE R OH K ALANA HIT HER HEAD ON THE DOIR WINDOW AND IS HAVING HEADACHES ME MAMA JUNE I HAVING BAD HEADACHES AND ALOT OF PAIN IN MY BACK ..SUHARBEAR IS OH K HIS BACK WAS HURTING BUT BETTER TODAY....PUMPKIN HAD A SEVERE PANIC ATTACK AT THE WRECK AND AFTER THE HOSPITAL VISIT THE DETERMINED SHW HAS SEVERE BRUISING IN HER CHEST AND IT HARD FOR HER TO BREATH LIKE SHE SAUD WGAT A WAY TO REMEMBER TURNING 14 TODAY AND JESSICA WAS IN THE VERY BACK AND WAS NOT HURT ...ANNA AND KATILYN WASNT WITH US LUCKY ENOIGH ...BUT BANGED UP AND ALL CAUSE PUMPKIN HAS BEEN STILL VERY UPSET SINCE THE WRECK SO WE R GOING TO DINNER LIKE WE PLANNED TO CELEBRATE FOR BDAY...THANKS FOR YOUR THOUGHTS AND CARING FOR US WE WILL B OH K CAR CAN B HOPEFULLY FIXED BUT GREAT THE OTHER GUY WASNT HURT"
