Tabloid: Actress Jan "WKRP" Smithers Hurt in Naked Car Accident

Remember Baily Quarters from the old WKRP in Cincinnati TV show? Well, she disappeared after that show went off the air, married actor Jame Brolin for a while they recently showed up on a California highway in the middle of the night, naked in her car. Wait . . . what? Here's more from Starpulse:
The ex-wife of Barbra Streisand's husband James Brolin is recovering in hospital after a bizarre traffic accident. Actress Jan Smithers, a star of beloved TV sitcom WKRP In Cincinnati, was driving naked when she stopped for help after her car broke down on a remote California highway in the middle of the night.
She was hit by a truck after the driver caught sight of the 58-year-old waving him down too late. She has been recovering from her injuries ever since the September accident, but family members fear her health issues might be more than a few broken bones.
A family friend tells the National Enquirer she fears Smithers suffered a mental breakdown following the death of her father. The pal says, "Everyone thinks Jan felt abandoned and snapped - a complete meltdown."
Ironically, police called to the scene of the accident found nothing wrong with her car and are puzzled as to why the actress stopped for help. Smithers can't remember anything about the accident or why she was driving naked in the middle of the night.

Have a little tact. And for God's sake, remove this bastardization of a police report. For one,. you should be wise enough to know that it isn't accurate nor the kind of public info. the SB PD would release. Much less, is it kind or helpful of you to propagate such defamation. DO you need a personal wake up call yourself? Or would you like someone to propagate whatever the ever-sensationalizing Enquirer writes about you? Oh, I imagine there aren't allot of people out looking to write stories about you...But who knows? You would be a kind and respectable human, and better journalist to review the sources of your story, and remove your repetition of false info instead of trying to be another tabloid writer. Stick to Paris and Lyndsay ok? Jan, by the way, left my home fully clothed. She also spent the past eighteen years raising her daughter like a true woman of heart. She also just suffered the death of not just her father, but her mother as well, and on top of it, saw her daughter off to college a few months ago. She does need to heal. How would it feel for you to be in her shoes--reading your little gossip column, with so much [pain, so much loss and so much heart? Can you try to imagine that? And then, not for me--but for her, and all good mothers, daughters and kind-hearted souls everywhere--remove the crap you are propagating so heartlessly without any proof or understanding of whom you are speaking.
