Pia Zadora badly hurt after Vegas golf cart fall

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Entertainer Pia Zadora has been hospitalized with serious head and leg injuries after a fall from a motorized golf cart driven by her teenage son near their northwest Las Vegas home.

Zadora's husband, Mike Jeffries, tells the Las Vegas Sun (http://bit.ly/1uLVwuB ) the singer-actress suffered a head injury and a compound ankle fracture in the Thursday evening accident. She's recovering in intensive care at University Medical Center.

Jeffries says Zadora's upcoming performances at Piero's Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas are canceled.

Zadora was a child Broadway actress and appeared in movies before becoming a singer of popular standards.

A Las Vegas judge last year ordered her to complete alcohol and impulse-control counseling after a domestic squabble involving spraying her teenage son with a hose to get him to go to bed.
