Kristin Cavallari is recovering from a car accident that sent her to the hospital Thursday.

"She was hit by another driver in Chicago. She is doing fine and will be discharged from the hospital shortly," a representative for the reality star told TODAY.

According to E! News, none of her children were in the car at the time.

It's been a difficult time for Cavallari's family. In December, the 29-year-old mom of three lost her older brother Michael, who was found dead at age 30 after a two-week search.
