The driver of the Nissan Xterra that Parton was riding in has been identified as 68 year-old Judy Ogle, Dolly's close friend. The driver of the other car - a Mitsubishi Diamante - that was also involved in the crash has been named as Diane Lish, 64, of Tennessee. She was taken to another hospital for treatment but none of the injuries inflicted to the parties involved were serious.
Luckily, The Accident Was Neither Dolly Nor Judy's Fault.
"I was in a fender bender this morning here in Nashville, but I am all good... Just a little tired and sore. Resting at home now!" the country star tweeted. She and Ogle were reportedly taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries, the police report said. Dolly's stoic tweet was met by an outpouring of support from her Twitter followers, all wishing her the best of health.
The smash hasn't taken the wind out of the 67 year-old's sales as she followed that tweet with an announcement that she would be embarking on a tour of Europe as part of her 'Blue Smoke World Tour' next June and July.
