INDUSTRY NEWS
Samantha Ronson Hit by A Car

The celebrity deejay got involved in a bad accident Saturday.

She was riding her bike home after a concert at The Brig in Los Angeles when she got knocked over by a car that came out of nowhere. She was sent to the hospital but don't worry she's fine, only a few stitches and bruises. She tweeted a picture of herself earlier this morning.

"Let this be a lesson," she wrote. '"If you have a driver's licence you probably don't need to be on a bmx bike."

She cancelled her gig in Utah just to be safe.
