Joe Perry in auto accident

Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has been released from hospital following an auto accident yesterday in Middelboro, Massachusetts.

Joe’s 2009 Ducati Monster 696 motorcycle was rear-ended by a 2001 Chevy Malibu at about 2 p.m. Perry reportedly had stopped at a light at the intersection of routes 44 and 105; when the light turned green, Perry accelerated and was hit from behind.

Perry was taken by ambulance to Morton Hospital and Medical Center in Taunton, where he was treated and released about 4:30 p.m.

Linda O’Brien, 62, of Middleboro, has been cited for following a vehicle too closely.

Aerosmith are on a short break before getting back in the saddle on their North American tour next week; no dates are expected to affected by Perry’s accident.
