Pregnant singer Jewel has assured fans she's recovering well following her car accident on Friday morning, insisting she feels "blessed" to have avoided serious injury.
A volunteer fire truck smashed into the side of the star's vehicle in Stephenville, Texas and she was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.
Jewel reveals she was "a little sore and banged up" following the incident and is just grateful her sturdy car saved her from anything worse.
In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Hey everyone - just got released from the ER & my Dr's office - everything is fine - me and the baby are OK - thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.
"Dr said no working out - so I'm going to take it easy this weekend. Just a little sore and banged up - but feeling so blessed this morning.
"One thing I do know is my car saved my and baby's life - definitely going 2 get another Cadillac SRX! It absorbed all the damage and kept me safe!"
Jewel is expecting her first child with husband Ty Murray later this year.
