UPDATE: E! News has learned that Kristin Cavallari was discharged from a Chicago-area hospital yesterday after her car accident. Neither Kristin nor her husband, Jay Cutler, have addressed the accident on social media.


Kristin was hospitalized after being involved in a car accident on Thursday afternoon.

The fashion designer's rep, Jack Ketsoyan, tells E! News, "She was hit by another driver in Chicago. She is doing fine and will be discharged from the hospital shortly." 

Another source added that her injuries are not serious, though she did suffer from a dislocated elbow.

None of her three young children—Camden, Jaxon or Saylor—were in the car at the time, and we're told her husband arrived at the hospital shortly after she was admitted.

TMZ says police officials also arrived at the hospital to to take a report of the incident.

Meanwhile, it's been a rough few months for Cavallari. In December, the Hills alum tragically lost her brother, Michael, in who went missing for several days and was later found dead in Utah.

Our thoughts are with Kristin and her family as she recovers.

TMZ was the first to break the story.
