Actress and singer Pia Zadora suffered head injuries and a broken ankle after she was thrown from a golf cart driven by her teenage son in Las Vegas, her manager said Friday.

“It was an inadvertent golf cart accident. Her son was driving and he took a rather hard turn and she was tossed out of the golf cart,” manager Brian Panella told NBC News. Zadora was a member of the original Broadway cast of “Fiddler on the Roof” and has appeared in films such as “Butterfly,” “Hairspray” and “Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult.”

Zadora, 60, is hospitalized at the Las Vegas University Medical Center and is expected to recover, Panella said. Doctors had initially feared Zadora suffered bruising to her brain, but Panella said they don’t expect her injuries to have a lasting impact. “She has a teenage son of driving age who needs to stay away from golf carts, but that's another story," he added.
