Fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs Injured in Plane Propeller Accident

Model and fashion blogger Lauren Scruggs was severely injured in Texas over the weekend in a plane propeller accident. Scruggs–who blogs at Lolo–has lost her left hand and suffered severe facial injuries after she walked into a spinning propeller while exiting a small plane. According to People:

Scruggs had been flying around the state to look at Christmas lights. Her hand was later amputated by surgeons and the FAA is investigating the accident. She also sustained severe head and shoulder injuries during the mishap, according to a family spokesperson who posted on the website Caring Bridge. “After exiting a propeller plane, an accident occurred where she walked into the front of the prop,” the post reads. “Struck on the left side of her body, Lauren’s hand, head, and shoulder area were hit.”

Scruggs is “now resting in ICU with the family.” They are accepting donations to help with her medical bills. MSNBC interviews her parents:
