Dolly was a passenger in a Nissan SUV that was struck by another car. The singer/songwriter and two others were taken to a nearby hospital to be treated and were released later that same day. All of the injuries were minor, according to a news statement.

After the car accident, Dolly tweeted on Oct. 21:

Dolly’s good friend Judy Ogle was driving the SUV, and she ended up getting trapped in the driver’s seat after the other vehicle slammed into her car, according to TMZ. Judy needed help getting out of the car, but she is reportedly okay now.

We’re so glad to hear that Dolly and everyone involved in the fender bender are on the mend!
