NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — "Cake Boss" star Buddy Valastro suffered a serious hand injury in a "terrible" bowling accident at his home in New Jersey.

His right hand got stuck in the pinsetter at his home bowling alley over the weekend.

A rep tells E! News that a one-and-a-half inch rod impaled his hand three times before his teenage sons were able help him cut the rod with a saw.

On Wednesday, Valastro shared a photo of himself on social media in a hospital bed with his arm in cast.

"I was involved in a terrible accident a few days ago... What do you think of my new accessory?" he wrote.
