Pregnant ‘Teen Mom’ Star Maci Bookout in a Car Accident with Son
As her delivery for her new baby girl comes near, Maci Bookout got into some car trouble as her jeep flipped over and was found overturned in the highway. Even more terrifying was the fact that her eldest son Bentley was with her during the accident.
On Sunday, Jan. 18, 2015, Bookout posted photos in Instagram of what looked like an overturned jeep which was later righted up. In her caption, Bookout revealed that the vehicle was her Jeep Wrangler which turned over three times and came to a stop when it hit a lane divider.
Thanking God that Bentley and I were able to walk away from this nightmare with only a few bruises. Thanking God that my unborn baby girl is perfectly healthy after this. I'd also like to @JeepOfficial @Jeep because if our seatbelts and the roll cage had not done their job, I'm not sure my family and I would of had the same outcome. Thanks to everyone that stopped to help, that was huge. I pray everyone else involved is doing okay. #jeepwrangler #rolledthreetimes #terrifying #totaled #notmyfault
Fortunately, the five-month pregnant star and her son Bentley, who was riding out with her that day, managed to get off the accident with minimal physical injuries.
As of the moment, further details regarding the accident were not released, though Bookout denied that the accident was her fault in her Instagram post. She also thanked her friends for their concern and support over her and her children (counting her unborn baby), as well the makers of her jeep for making it secure enough in keeping them safe during the accident.
Last month, Bookout’s ex and her son’s father Ryan Edwards also got into a car accident on Friday, Dec. 12, 2014. According to PD officials interviewed by TMZ, Edwards’ car and another car driven by an unnamed woman had a head-on collision. Though reported not to be severely injured, the other driver was taken to the hospital while Edwards had his wounds patched up on the spot and had a friend pick him up from the accident scene.
Bookout and Edwards both starred in MTV’s “16 and Pregnant,” which chronicled their lives as young parents, though eventually the two broke up. Bookout is currently pregnant with a baby girl with her current boyfriend Taylor McKinney.
In an interview with In Touch, Bookout revealed that she and McKinney plan to get married this year, preferably some time after their daughter is born.
“I don’t want to be a pregnant bride. That would be way too stressful! Plus, I want to be able to have fun at my wedding,” Bookout shared.
