Country queen Dolly Parton was involved in what she called a “fender-bender” on Monday after the SUV she was traveling in was hit by another vehicle.
Parton was in the passenger’s seat when the driver of the other vehicle failed to yield causing the cars to collide, according to Nashville police. The legendary singer tweeted about the accident soon after she arrived home.
I was in a fender bender this morning here in Nashville, but I am all good... Just a little tired and sore. Resting at home now!— Dolly Parton (@DollyParton) October 21, 2013
Parton and her friend, who was driving the car, were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with injuries that did not appear to be serious according to a police statement.
Just the other day, Parton announced on her Twitter page that she would be traveling to Australia in February and Europe in June and July for her Blue Smoke World Tour. This will be Parton’s eleventh concert tour since she began performing over four decades ago.
