Frampton injured in car crash
Peter Frampton has slammed a woman who was texting while driving after she crashed into him and caused an injury to his back.
The guitarist believes he’s suffering from whiplash following the incident in Southern California.
Frampton last night tweeted: “Texting woman driver just ran into back of me while I was stationary in traffic 101 freeway. Can u say whiplash? People put the phones down!”
He later added: “Back and neck not good. Going to ER after my flight.”
He’s about to kick off a US tour starting on Friday in Minnesota, but it’s not known whether his injury will affect any of the six dates.
The Humble Pie axeman was reunited with one of his favourite guitars earlier this year, after it was lost in a plane crash in 1980. The black Gibson Les Paul, featured on the cover of his 1976 album Frampton Comes Alive, was located in the Caribbean and returned to its owner in January. He said at the time: “It’s got to go on the road – it’s not something I’m going to hide in the closet.”
