The crash follows a difficult few weeks for the star, whose brother Michael was found dead in December after going missing for several days. Kristin said her heart was "in a million pieces" following the death of her older brother, who disappeared the day after Thanksgiving.

Sharing a childhood photo of herself with her sibling on Instagram at the time, Kristin wrote: "Mikey, I could always count on you to make me laugh. You had such a good heart and will be forever missed. I'm at a loss for words but know u are in a better place and finally at peace. I love u so much RIP."

Kristin has been coping with her grief with the help of her husband Jay and their three children – Camden, three, Jaxon, 19-months, and two-month-old Saylor James.
