All Saints actress Jolene Anderson injured in car crash

ALL Saints star Jolene Anderson has been injured in a car crash.

The news comes as the show's fans reel from the death of actor Mark Priestley, who played her on-screen lover.

Logie nominee Anderson plays nurse Erica Templeton in the Channel 7 series.

Her character married Priestley's nurse Dan Goldman after an on-off relationship in Tuesday's episode.

Anderson was returning home from a matinee performance of Tell Me On A Sunday - her new musical - when her vehicle was struck by a truck.

She is understood to have sustained an arm injury, which has required a sling.

An understudy was forced to cover for the actress in last night's performance at the Seymour Centre in Sydney.

A staffer at Kookaburra Theatre, which produces the show, was unable to comment on when Anderson was expected to return to her leading lady role.

She was informed of the Priestley tragedy today.

A spokesman said she was "in shock" and had no comment to make.
