Peter Frampton injured in car accident

Peter Frampton was involved in a minor car accident on Tuesday.

Frampton tweeted the news: "Texting woman driver just ran into back of me while I was stationary in traffic 101 freeway. Can u say whiplash? People put the phones down!"

No word on whether police were involved, or if the driver was cited for texting while driving, which is illegal in the state of California.

The incident left the legendary guitarist with sufficient pain that he felt the need to be checked out by medical staff.

"Back and neck not good. Going to ER after my flight today," he posted.

A further update by Frampton indicated “I'm, "Grinning and Bearing" the tour already and it hasn't even started yet! Ouch!! Ha ha ha ha” along with an image of a large bear standing upright and growling.

Frampton is set to kick off his series of summer tour dates on Friday in Otsego, MN.
