Dolly Parton was hospitalised after being involved in a car crash.
The 67-year-old country music icon was rushed to the emergency room in Nashville, Tennessee quickly after the Monday morning accident took place.
A police department source from Nashville tells TMZ that Dolly was riding as a passenger while her friend Judy Ogle was suddenly 'struck by another vehicle'.
According to the website 'Ogle was not to blame for the collision', but full details have not yet been released.
Dolly was treated for 'minor injuries' and was released the same day.
The star is in high spirits following the crash and is now at home recuperating.
'I was in a fender bender this morning here in Nashville, but I am all good...' Dolly wrote on Twitter to her over 2.8 million followers.
'Just a little tired and sore. Resting at home now!'
Earlier in the year it was reported Dolly underwent surgery over fear of developing oesophageal cancer.
Apparently she was struggling to eat anything other than soft foods for a period of time and she had a cutting-edge device implanted into her oesophagus that helps food pass into the stomach.
"Dolly knew something had to be done - or she could die," a source told the National Enquirer.
"Her weight was dropping dramatically, she was chugging anti-acid medication, and she couldn't eat anything but soft, bland foods.
"Dolly was worried at first that she wouldn't be able to have the procedure. When she learned about this treatment, she knew it was her last hope.'
