Dolly Parton is feeling OK after getting into a car accident after she was reportedly treated for "minor injuries".

The '9 to 5' singer went to hospital after the vehicle she was in was suddenly struck by another one, according to TMZ.

The 67-year-old was rushed to the emergency room in Nashville, Tennessee on Monday and was apparently a passenger while her friend Judy Ogle controlled the motor.

“Ogle was not to blame for the collision”, a source told the website but Dolly was treated for “minor injuries”.

Now she is out of medical care, the country music star has shared details of her condition on Twitter.

“I was in a fender bender this morning here in Nashville, but I am all good...” she told over 2.8 million followers.

“Just a little tired and sore. Resting at home now!”

Earlier in the year it was reported Dolly underwent surgery over fear of developing oesophageal cancer.

Apparently she was struggling to eat anything other than soft foods for a period of time and she had a cutting-edge device implanted into her oesophagus that helps food pass into the stomach.

"Dolly knew something had to be done - or she could die," a source told the National Enquirer.

"Her weight was dropping dramatically, she was chugging anti-acid medication, and she couldn’t eat anything but soft, bland foods.

"Dolly was worried at first that she wouldn’t be able to have the procedure. When she learned about this treatment, she knew it was her last hope.”

Dolly recently made fun of herself and Miley Cyrus on Queen Latifah’s US chat show.

The singer-songwriter boasted about her famous assets, rapping "Now I don't hip and I don't hop/ I'd black both eyes with this big top," while holding her boobs, adding: "I know the Queen has got ‘em too/ But she don't work ‘em like I do."

She then turned her attention to Miley, joking that she had hijacked her wrecking balls.

"Whoo, look at them go/ I'm tweaking them/ I'm working, I'm twerking/ Hey, Miley, I have your wrecking ball right here!" she rhymed.
