Diana Ross Okay After Car Accident


Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagicDiana Ross took to social media on Thursday to assure her fans she’s doing fine after a woman driving an SUV ran a stop sign and crashed into a limo carrying the singer to a performance at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center in Pennsylvania a day earlier.

Ross, 72, wrote on Facebook, “I was involved in a car accident yesterday. I’m going to be a little sore, but it was mostly shocking. I have a very tiny sore bump on my forehead at my hairline. I ask you not to worry. I will see you tonight at the show in Providence.”

The driver of the vehicle wasn’t hurt in the crash, but received a ticket for a stop sign violation and was released, Bethlehem police Chief Mark DiLuzio tells

Ross complained of head and neck pain and was treated by city paramedics, but said she would seek further care on her own, according to DiLuzio. She performed as scheduled Wednesday night in Bethlehem and didn’t mention the crash.

Ross’ next show is April 23 aboard a Carnival cruise ship.
