Kris Allen Breaks Arm in Head-On Collision Car Crash

Kris Allen looks visibly distraught while trying to relax in his hospital bed after breaking his arm in a head-on collision car crash on Tuesday (January 1).

“From Kris: he’s in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please! #headoncollision,” the 27-year-old American Idol winner’s mom Kimberly tweeted.

Kristopher and [his wife] Katy are both pretty beat up but ALIVE! Thank you Jesus! They are setting his arm now and will have surgery tomorrow,” Kimberly added. “Zorro is fine too! Very shook up, but not injured.”

Wishing you a speedy recovery, Kris!

    Car accidents are always scary. And this one was a head-on collision, so Kris and Katy could have been injured even worse. Wishing both of them very speeding recoveries. Hopefully the aurgery on his arm goes smoothly.

    He’s a sweetheart!!!! So glad you’re OK, Kris, and your wife, too!!! Please take care. Just because you can’t play your guitar for a while doesn’t mean you can’t “write” beautiful music and sing it. You are very lucky to still be around. We like you in our world, so hang in there!

    Glad they’re okay! That said, he doesn’t look distraught to me. He looks like he’s goofing for the camera.
