Los Angeles: Jill Zarin, who was part of reality TV series "Real Housewives of New York", was briefly hospitalised after being involved in a car accident.
Jill was heading to an event in Manhattan on Friday morning when the accident occurred. The car in which she was a passenger was involved in a multi-car pile-up, reported E! online.
Jill's publicist, travelling in the same vehicle as her client, was also taken to hospital. They were due to appear at an event promoting Jill's new science fiction movie, "Night of the Wild".
The car crash, reportedly involving three vehicles, took place on Franklin D Roosevelt Avenue.
"Jill Zarin was rushed by ambulance to the hospital where she was treated for unknown injuries and later released,? Jill's representative said.
"Zarin is currently at home recuperating and no additional details are available at this time."
Jill was one of the main cast on "The Real Housewives of New York" between 2008 and 2011. She was fired from the show after her relationship with a number of the other housewives, including Bethenny Frankel, took an unpleasant turn and there was a particularly toxic reunion after the finale of the fourth season aired.
Since then Jill has turned her attention to acting, including her recent project "Night of the Wild".
