American Idol Winner Kris Allen Car Crash and Surgery

By January 5, 2013

Follow me on:

Kris Allen, American Idol winner and "Live Like We're Dying" singer, was in a serious car crash this week and will be having surgery for his injuries.

Allen, who was in the car with his pregnant wife, broke his wrist in the head-on collision.  He will be having surgery to repair the break this week and is expected to make a full recovery.

What's the difference between a broken bone and a fractured bone?

Wishing Kris the best for a full and speedy recovery. Glad it was only a broken wrist. Also glad, wife and dog and baby to be were unharmed. Congrats on the baby news. Kris is multi talented and does so many good things to help others. So glad he’s okay. From the photo of the car…it could have been worse.
