Famed singer, songwriter and actress Dolly Parton was in a traffic accident in Nashville on Monday, according to a CNN report published on Monday. Though taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries resulting from the crash Parton, 67, announced via her social media Twitter account that she is all good, and just a little tired and sore while resting at home following the accident.
The singer, likely best known for having recorded the original version of her classic composition “I Will Always Love You” and for starring in the motion picture "9 to 5," was a passenger in the front seat of a Nissan Xterra which was being driven by Judy Ogle, 68. Parton and Ogle have reportedly been close friends since elementary school.
The driver of the other vehicle, Diane Lish, 64, of Old Hickory, Tennessee – who was at fault for the accident – was driving a Mitsubishi Diamante.
Parton and Ogle were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center while Lish was taken to another hospital. None of those involved had serious injuries.
