MTV reality TV star Erica Mongeon is battling for life after she and her sister Victoria were involved in a near-fatal car accident in Bakersfield, California.

According to TMZ.com, the sibling stars of dating show A Double Shot at Love were passengers in a car travelling through Bakersfield on Tuesday when their vehicle collided with a truck.

Victoria and the driver of the car were not seriously injured, but reports suggest Erica needed immediate medical attention and was taken to hospital.

Once there, she was placed in a medically-induced coma, so doctors could work on a head wound.

The website reports medics found blood on her brain.

The injured star's manager says doctors are optimistic.
