Dolly Parton is recovering at home after the car accident.

Parton was in the front passenger seat of a Nissan Xterra when the car was struck by a Mitsubishi Diamante. The Mitsubishi was driven by 64-year-old Diane Lish who seemingly failed to yield at a crossroads. Police were able to confirm that Lish was at fault as she failed to yield. 

Parton and the driver of the Nissan were rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. Fortunately none of the injuries appeared to be serious, something Parton confirmed on Twitter. The 67-year-old wrote "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!"

Following Parton's twitter post, thousands of fans immediately responded sending their best wishes to the '9 to 5' singer. 

The 'Jolene' singer appeared 'twerking' on the Queen Latifah Show, which aired on Monday night, whilst rapping about her "wrecking balls". Parton gently mocked her goddaughter, troubled Miley Cyrus, who appeared at the MTV VMAs in August 'twerking'. The singer may need to take a break from her blonde afro antics in order to recover from her minor injuries.

Get well soon Dolly!
