GLAMIS, Calif., April 4 (UPI) -- Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge were hospitalized Saturday after a scary four-wheeling accident.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ the Real Housewives of Orange County stars were riding in a Polaris RZR dune buggy when the vehicle flipped and rolled over several times.

Eyewitnesses reported both women complained of back and neck pain and that Gunvalson was vomiting and couldn't feel her fingers. Gunvalson was airlifted from the scene and released Sunday morning with no major injuries.

"Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. #itwasntourtime," she captioned a photo of the helicopter that airlifted her out.

Judge, who was driving the four-wheeler, was also hospitalized the day of the incident. She later confirmed the news in a Facebook post, thanking fans for their "prayers and concerns."

"We are both beat up but very lucky to be alive," she wrote. "I've never been so scared in my life. As the driver I have an overwhelming amount of guilt and thanking God that the 4 of us are alive."

Judge followed up by denying she was drinking alcohol and slammed claims she was told to slow down while driving. She called the incident "an unfortunate accident coming off a top of a dune and landing wrong."
