Peter Frampton Banged Up In Car Accident, Blames Other Driver’s Texting

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Rock legend Peter Frampton was in a car accident on Tuesday — and he’s not happy with the driver who caused it.

Frampton was apparently rear-ended while on a California highway, and the rocker says it’s because the other motorist was paying closer attention to her phone than the road.

“Texting woman driver just ran into back of me while I was stationary in traffic 101 freeway,” wrote Frampton on Twitter.

He added, “Can u say whiplash? People put the phones down!”

Frampton was well enough to get on a plane after the collision, but said he planned to get checked out in a hospital.

The rocker tweeted, “Back and neck not good. Going to ER after my flight today.”

Fortunately, Frampton seems OK, but any reminder of the dangers of texting-and-driving is worth noting.

At least he wasn’t being chased by paparazzi.
