Will.i.am and Cheryl Cole are "fine" after receiving minor injuries in a car accident early yesterday morning in Los Angeles, The Guardian reports. The Black Eyed Peas leader was driving with Cole in the passenger seat when his Cadillac ran into a parked car around 3:30 a.m. PDT, after leaving a recording studio. Cole was treated at the scene, but will.i.am was taken to the hospital in a neck brace with a bloody nose.

"Car accidents are not dope . . . I'm glad I'm o.k," tweeted will.i.am, while Cole tweeted, "Don't worry me and @iamwill are fine, promise x."

Will.i.am debuted his song "Reach For The Stars" earlier this week, teaming with NASA to broadcast the track from the Curiosity rover on Mars.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
