Tricia Wayne was in a car wreck
Tricia and JJ Da Boss were in a car wreck while filming Street Outlaws: America’s List. They were driving separate cars when the accident happened on the night of January 12 in South Texas. They were both injured in the incident.
An update was posted on the Deep South Street Racing Facebook page on January 14, which stated: “JJ Da Boss is out of the hospital.“ The page also added details that the racer suffered burns to his hands and face.
JJ’s wife was also taken to hospital where she “had hip surgery and is now in recovery“. Since the crash, JJ said on the show he doesn’t know whether he’ll ever get the part of himself back that was there before the incident.
She is in a temporary wheelchair
Tricia turned up to the recent episode of Street Outlaws: America’s List in a wheelchair, which left viewers questioning what happened to her. She thanked her co-stars for their well-wishes and became teary during her return.
She revealed being in a wheelchair “looks bad but it’s temporary” and told cast members:
You’ve given me so much support and it truly helps me get through every day. This looks bad but this is just temporary. With that, I do have something I want to give. I have a necklace for the number one.
***WARNING: Spoiler ahead***
Tricia gifted a necklace to the racer who gets the number one spot in the race, which was later received by Ryan Martin.
