Country star Tracy Byrd and his wife Michele are recovering following a serious car accident in southeast Texas on Tuesday (17Jul12).
The Byrds were driving along Highway 69 in Lumberton when another vehicle collided into their black Ford Excursion truck.
The singer and his wife were hospitalised and Michele was forced to undergo two surgeries on her left foot. She later took to Facebook.com to thank friends and family for their well wishes, insisting she felt "blessed" to have escaped serious harm.
According to the Associated Press, the offending driver, Jolliette Capo, was ticketed for failure to yield the right of way.
