Tragedy strikes family of Y&R's Hunter King
Kelli King, the sister of The Young and the Restless' Hunter King (Summer Newman), was hit by a semi truck earlier this week.

The Young and the Restless' Hunter King (Summer Newman) and her sister, Joey King (Independence Day: Resurgence), took to Instagram this week to reveal that their sister, Kelli, was hit by a semi truck "while bicycling to work" Tuesday morning.

"For those that dont know. My sister Kelli was in a terrible accident where she was hit by an 18 wheeler semi truck while bicycling to work yesterday morning," Joey King wrote in a post. "She's in great hands and is on the road to recovery. I'm just unbelievably grateful that she's alive. Please keep her in your thoughts."

Wishing my Biggish Bear a health recovery. Hold the ones you love tight. I love you @kelliisking so grateful you are here
