KTRK weekend anchor Erica Simon, who is seven months pregnant, had a scare Wednesday when she was involved in a car accident in Houston.

“What a long, awful night (due to a wreck),” wrote Erica Simon on Twitter. “Very sore and car was damaged, but I thank God it wasn’t worse. Baby and I are going to spend the day recovering, so I won’t be on the air this evening.”

She told her followers someone slammed into her car.


“So glad I was wearing my seat belt. Would have been worse if I hadn’t,” she said.

The anchor took the night off from doing the news. She said in a series of tweets that her head and back were injured in the crash but the baby is OK.

Viewers sent in get well notes to Simon. She was back on the air the next night.
