The Bold And The Beautiful’s Linsey Godfrey Accident
Soaps.com has learned, on February 2, “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Linsey Godfrey (Caroline) suffered two broken legs after being struck by a car in Los Angeles today. According to an online report from TMZ, the actress was walking down the street when a car hit her around 2:30 PM, pinning her under the vehicle. TMZ reports, “When emergency responders arrived, a citizen had already moved her from the wreckage … and she was rushed to the hospital by ambulance.” Godfrey went into surgery soon after.
Soaps.com wishes Godfrey a hasty recovery. We will notify our readers in the event that more news becomes available.
A new report from Highlight Hollywood states that Godfrey’s manager says, “Linsey’s currently out of surgery, her injuries are to her ankles. Fortunately she does not have two broken legs as reports say. Her doctor says that she is expected to make a full recovery.”
On February 3, Linsey Godfrey’s manager told Soaps.com that the actress is still in hospital, where she is expected to remain for a couple of days as doctors wait for the swelling on her ankles to go down. She is in good spirits and a full recovery is expected.
A spokeswoman for “B&B” confirmed to People that Linsey Godfrey’s injuries were limited to her ankles and that she would make a full recovery. Taping at the show is being rearranged for a few days to accommodate her absence, considering she is currently involved in a major storyline.
On March 2, Linsey Godfrey returned to the “B&B” studio to tape on Wednesday March 4 after time off to recover following her accident. She tweeted over the weekend, on February 16, to let fans know that she was home from the hospital and on the road to recuperation.
