Mayim Bialik was in a car crash today at Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, resulting in injuries that might cause her to lose a finger. The 36-year-old actress was reportedly driving through the intersection in a white Volvo at about noon when she was hit by a car full of tourists from Chile.
