Dolly Parton involved in car crash

DOLLY Parton was rushed to hospital after a car crash yesterday (21.10.13).

The 67-year-old singer was taken to a local accident and emergency centre in Nashville by ambulance after the motor she was travelling in collided with another vehicle.

The '9 to 5' hitmaker was riding in the passenger seat of her pal Judy Ogle's Nissan Xterra when the driver of a Mitsubishi Diamante failed to stop, which led to both parties sustaining minor injuries, but requiring medical assistance.

Dolly took to Twitter a few hours after the accident to assure her fans she was feeling "good" but was spending time at home as she was feeling "tired and sore".

She said: "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! (sic)".
