Rod Stewart suffers a broken bone after head-on car crash

2014-12-02 17:00

Los Angeles - Rod Stewart was involved in a head-on car crash.

The 69-year-old singer managed to escape the death-defying smash with just a broken finger, which he later painted silver to walk the red carpet at a glitzy event, but his wife Penny Lancaster has revealed the Maggie May hitmaker was incredibly lucky to survive the incident.

She said: "He was unfortunately involved in a car accident on the way to a show. He escaped relatively unharmed apart from a broken finger.

"It was black and blue so he painted it silver. A car was on the wrong side of the road so it was complete head-on."

Rod - who has two children with Penny, Alistair, nine, and three-year-old Aiden - debuted his silver fingernail at the Mercedes-Benz Carousel Of Hope Gala in Los Angeles in mid-October, just two weeks after his horror smash.


Despite his injured digit, the talk of the event was that Penny could be pregnant as Rod sparked speculation she might be expecting as he was pictured rubbing her stomach, but the 43-year-old beauty has confirmed that is not the case.

Speaking on ITV's Loose Women, she added: "If you're not holding hands then you're breaking up and I'd been losing a bit of weight and I wasn't confident about the dress I was wearing and I think it was him just going, 'Oh, look at you, I'm proud of you.'"

News of Rod's near-death crash comes after both David Beckham and Angelina Jolie were involved in separate car crashes over the weekend.
