Dolly Parton hospitalized with minor injuries following accident
Parton's Fender Bender
Monday morning Dolly Parton was riding shotgun in a Nissan Xterra with best friend Judy Ogle when they were hit by another cruising vehicle. Miss Diane Lish, 64, failed to yield to the singer and Ogle at the corner of Kirkwood Ave and Vaulx Ln.
Police say Ogle was driving east when Lish's Mitsubishi Diamante collided with the Xterra at 11:41 am. This put a quick stop to their planned day of entertainment in Nashville. All three ladies were taken to local hospitals by ambulance, where they were treated for minor injuries. Parton was released from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center a short time after being admitted. Ogle went to Vanderbilt as well while Lish was taken to Centennial Medical Center.
Parton's publicist Kirt Webster, of Webster and Associates, says she is doing great. All three women are reported to be doing fine. The 67 year old country star herself is recovering quickly from what she called a "fender bender." Through Twitter, she told fans, "I am all good... Just a little tired and sore. Resting at home now!" She is already back to business: planning European tour dates for next June and July. Her fans are all sending their e-support.
