Actress and stuntwoman Carrie Bernans, known for her roles in "The Color Purple" and "Black Panther," sustained severe injuries in a New Year's Day crash in New York City.

The incident occurred around 01:30 when a driver, involved in an argument in Midtown Manhattan, struck seven pedestrians and a police officer while attempting to drive away.

Bernans, one of the nine people wounded, was walking with a friend when the car collided with her, rendering her unconscious and pinning her under a food cart.

A traumatic incident

Graphic photos shared by her mother revealed multiple broken bones, fractures, and dental injuries. Despite the severity of her injuries, Bernans underwent surgery and is expected to recover.

The actress, who became a new mom in May, assured that her child was safe with relatives at the time of the crash.

"She's still in so much pain and can't answer calls at this time, but appreciate the messages. This was a traumatic incident," her mother, Patricia Lee, wrote.

"Amidst the chaos of the New Year's incident, she's holding onto an immense sense of gratitude for life itself.

"This setback hasn't deterred her belief that something remarkable is still being crafted by God. Despite the injuries sustained in the collision caused by a hit-and-run in NYC, she's filled with hope and faith in the unfolding of a beautiful new chapter.

"Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she navigates this path toward recovery and new beginnings."

The suspect, a 44-year-old driver of a black Mercedes, was apprehended by the police after driving the wrong way and causing the crash.
