NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Country music superstar Dolly Parton tweeted that she is "just a little tired and sore" after receiving minor injuries in a Nashville car crash on Monday.

"I was in a fender bender this morning here in Nashville, but I am all good," Parton said. "Just a little tired and sore. Resting at home now!"

Nashville police said that Parton, 67, was the front-seat passenger in a Nissan Xterra being driven by another woman.

"Dolly Parton received minor injuries late this morning when the SUV in which she was riding was struck by a car at the intersection of Vaulx Lane and Kirkwood Avenue," police said in a statement posted on the department's Web site. "Parton was the front-seat passenger in a Nissan Xterra being driven by Judy Ogle, 68, of Nashville. They were traveling eastbound on Kirkwood Avenue when a Mitsubishi Diamante being driven by Diane Lish, 64, of Old Hickory, pulled into the intersection from Vaulx Lane. The two vehicles collided at 11:41 a.m.

"The investigation shows that Lish failed to yield. Ogle and Parton were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. Lish was taken to Centennial Medical Center. None of the injuries appeared to be serious."

Edmunds says: Fans will be relieved to know that Dolly Parton appears to be on the mend.
