An actress on The Bold and the Beautiful underwent surgery late Monday after she was hit by a car in Los Angeles.

PEOPLE has confirmed that Linsey Godfrey, who plays Caroline Spencer on the CBS drama, was struck Monday afternoon while walking down a street. The car had apparently careened onto the sidewalk after colliding with another vehicle.

A bystander reportedly pulled Godfrey, 26, from the wreckage before she was rushed to a hospital. A spokeswoman told PEOPLE that Godfrey’s injuries were limited to her ankles and she is expected to make a full recovery.

The Bold and the Beautiful was dark on Monday. A spokeswoman for the daytime drama said Godfrey’s character is in a “major story arc right now” but producers have rearranged taping for the next few days.

Fans of Godfrey, who was nominated last year for a daytime Emmy, have already flooded her Instagram page with get well posts.

“Sending love & prayers for a speedy recovery to my favorite B&B actress @ohmygodfrey,” said one.
