Twin sibling stars of MTV’s Double Shot At Love Erica “Rikki” Mongeon and Victoria “Vikki” Mongeon were involved in a car accident in Bakersfield, California at approximately 12:20 AM when their Volkswagen Jetta collided with a semi-truck.
According to TMZ, Vikki and the driver of the Jetta did not sustain serious injuries in the crash, and Rikki seemed fine after the accident as well. But, after discovering a bump pn her head she decided it would be smart to drive to the hospital and have them check it out. Doctors performed a CAT scan and discovered Rikki had blood on her brain. They immediately put her in a medically induced coma and Rikki’s currently in ICU. The plans are to bring her out of the coma on Friday.
TMZ spoke with the “Ikki Twins'” manager and were told doctors are optimistic about Rikki’s chances of recovering.
Rikki and Vikki were the flirtatious, bodacious-bodied Ikki Twins on MTV’s dating competition reality show Double Shot At Love, a spin-off of Tila Tequila’s famous Shot At Love series. Here is the promotional copy for the show, including the first full episode immediately after:
