Pia Zadora Badly Injured in Las Vegas Golf Cart Fall

September 15, 2014

Entertainer Pia Zadora was hospitalized with serious head and leg injuries after a fall from a motorized golf cart driven by her teenage son near their northwest Las Vegas, Nev., home.

Zadora’s husband, Mike Jeffries, tells the Las Vegas Sun the singer-actress suffered a head injury and a compound ankle fracture in the Thursday evening accident. She is recovering in intensive care at University Medical Center.

Jeffries says Zadora’s upcoming performances at Piero’s Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas are canceled.

Zadora was a child Broadway actress and appeared in movies before becoming a singer of popular standards.

A Las Vegas judge last year ordered her to complete alcohol and impulse-control counseling after a domestic squabble involving spraying her teenage son with a hose to get him to go to bed.
