The celebrity news Web site quoted unnamed witnesses as saying there was a lot of blood at the scene.
One source told TMZ Bialik's finger was almost completely severed.
"It was just hanging there," the insider said.
TMZ did not say whether any of the people in the second vehicle were hurt or if any summonses were issued related to the collision.
