Rod Stewart Recently Survived a Head-On Car Collision

Rod Stewart was recently involved in a serious, head-on car collision and his wife Penny Lancaster is opening up about the scary accident.

“It was a few months ago and a nasty one: a head-on collision. Rod’s assistant, who was driving, injured his hand and my dad, bless him, was in the back seat. He suffered more than Rod. He dislocated his shoulder and elbow and probably won’t be able to straighten his arm again,” she told The Telegraph. The crash happened while they were heading to Stansted airport in London.

Rod was OK, thank God, apart from the broken finger. We’re all just so grateful because it could have been 10 times worse,” Penny added. “The other driver was on the wrong side of the road as they were coming around the bend – he must have just landed and forgotten which side of the road to drive on. It was pretty frightful but Rod managed to climb out of the vehicle – which was a total right-off. Then after an ambulance was called, he climbed into another car that was following them, made the flight and did his show. Not many people could do that: I think it was the adrenalin that kept him going.”

Penny also added that Rod used manicures to cover up his bruised fingernail. “Rod started painting it silver one week and gold the next – rather than walk around with this horrible bruised thing,” she said.

    They are turning the accidents into a laughable joke and one day somebody (anonymous or not so anonymous) might kill them.

    Is he laughing at Beckham and Angelina’s recent car accidents?

    Hmm… so wise of you Rod!
