Jewel: In Accident, My Car Saved My Life

It was a scary accident, but things could have been much worse.

Singer/songwriter Jewel, who announced in January that she was pregnant with her first child, had her car smashed by a volunteer fire engine in Texas on Friday. Luckily, she was okay, and she took to Twitter to reveal why.

"1 thing I do know is my car saved my & baby's life-definitely going 2 get another Cadillac SRX! It absorbed all the damage & kept me safe!" the star tweeted.

Cadillac certainly appreciated that tweet.

She also gave an update as to her health:

"Hey everyone-just got released from the ER & my Dr's office- everything is fine-me & the baby r ok- thanx 4 all your thoughts & prayers," she wrote. "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."
