"She received treatment on the scene by the show's medic until a New York Fire Department emergency medical team arrived and transported her to the hospital. All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery," CBS said in a statement following the accident.

Chenoweth, a Broadway veteran and Emmy winner, most recently starred on ABC's short-lived GCB. She joined Good Wife for its September season premiere, playing a political reporter who tries to uncover professional (and personal) dirt on the secretly separated Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Peter (Chris Noth) Florrick.

Chenoweth also starred on Pushing Daisies and has recurred on Glee.
