Talking Heads' Tina Weymouth is recovering after being injured in a car accident earlier this month, husband and fellow Talking Heads co-founder Chris Frántz has revealed.

Weymouth sustained three fractured ribs and a fractured sternum in the incident which saw the car that both she and Frántz were travelling in hit by a drunk driver. "I was driving on the Post Road, U.S. Route 1 with Tina Weymouth when we were struck head on by a drunk driver who was driving on the wrong side of the road," Frántz said in a Facebook post, which also included an image of their damaged car.

He continued: "Incredibly, we walked away from the collision. Tina had a cat scan and suffered three fractured ribs and a fractured sternum. She's been in a lot of pain but she will get better with time. I give thanks to our guardian angels and to the Ford Motor Company for building a car that protected us from getting killed."
