Internet Personality and makeup mogul Jeffree Star and his friend Daniel Lucas were both hospitalized after a car accident in Casper, Wyoming. According to Wyoming Highway Patrol, Star veered off a slushy road and overturned his Rolls Royce in the Casper area the morning of Friday, April 16. Later Friday afternoon on Star’s twitter there was a picture posted of himself in a hospital bed with a neck brace and his friend Lucas was in a chair next to him holding his hand. Star updated people on his and his friend’s conditions with follow up tweets about the accident. Star said “I’m in excruciating pain because part of my back is broken and I have vertebrae fractures on my spine. My doctor said it will take a few months but I should make a full recovery.” Star wrote about Lucas’s condition saying “…Daniel has internal injuries and because he has survived colon cancer three times, he’s having complications with his organs and they are monitoring him 24/7.” Star was discharged from the hospital on Saturday, and on Sunday he announced that Lucas was flying back to Las Vegas where he could get surgery done by his own specialist located there.

As mentioned earlier the make of the car involved in the accident was a Rolls-Royce. The car’s specific model was a Rolls-Royce Cullinan and it is an SUV. Base prices of Rolls-Royce Cullinans’ start from $330,000. Star posted the pictures of the damaged vehicle on twitter and talked about how the car is built with highly reinforced steel and thanks to that it saved his and his friends lives.

Jeffree has been a long time home owner in the Los Angeles area of California and just recently purchased a home with land in Wyoming. He has also talked about new warehouses for his company, Jeffree Star Cosmetics located there as well. The Casper Star Tribune reported that Star has been splitting time between California and his home near Casper since December.
