Shannon Beador's airbag allegedly didn't go off when she ran her car into a Newport Beach duplex, causing her face injury.

We're also told she broke her arm in the accident.

Her injuries were evident in photos that circulated on Wednesday.

Sources say Shannon broke her arm and "bruised and cut" her face.

Pictures first popped up showing Beador hiding her arm, with the photographer telling TMZ it might have been in a sling. Hours later, Page Six shared photos of the RHOC star concealing her face.

Both sets of snaps were taken when Beador was with John Janssen. While he claimed to Daily Mail they are "just friends," sources close to the pair told RadarOnline.com they are "definitely dating" and were "affectionate" the night before her car crash at Nobu.

Our insider shared that Beador's facial injury was caused when her airbag allegedly didn't deploy. We're told the RHOC star hit her face on something, most likely the steering wheel.
