Mark Ballas Hospitalized

Ballas, 28, was brought to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after complaining of whiplash and back pain as a result of the crash, reported TMZ. Doctors, who told the dancer his pain would get worse before it got better, prescribed him pain medication.

Ballas’ vehicle sustained significant damage in the accident and had to be towed away from the scene.

The accident was caused when Ballas was attempting to make a right hand turn and the vehicle behind him failed to stop, crashing into the back of his car. The driver and four passengers in the other vehicle reportedly attempted to put the blame of the crash on Ballas, but an eye-witness told police that the driver had been speeding.

Ballas is surely hoping to be in less pain for a planned performance he has with the Ballas Hough Band later this week.
