Jewel, who is expecting her first child, was involved in an accident with a fire truck. However, the singer's spokesperson confirms that Jewel and her baby are fine.

"Jewel was hit by a fire truck this morning in Texas," the singer's spokesperson said in a statement to People magazine. "The singer was taken to the hospital and current medical tests conducted indicate that she and the baby and doing fine."

"I have some exciting news & Ty and I are expecting!" Jewel said on her website.

"I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!" Jewel said. "It was so hard to keep it a secret. I was worried I'd start throwing up on set and everyone would be like, 'Oh, she's pregnant,'" she told People magazine at the time.

"I have always been a workaholic, so I had to learn how to slow down and take care of myself in a different way," she added. "I'm trying to be in the moment and really enjoy my pregnancy."

The 36-year-old singer and co-host of the new Bravo reality talent series, "Going Platinum," and Murray, a rodeo star, married in 2008. "Going Platinum," a 10-episode reality contest for singer-songwriters, is set to debut later this year and is set to be co-hosted by Kara DioGuardi, a former "American Idol" judge.
