"I am lucky my injuries will heal..."

It's been an eventful few months for Janet Weiss, to say the least.

The drummer departed from Sleater-Kinney, citing the direction of their incoming album as a factor.

Taking her band Quasi back out on the road - coincidentally at the same time at Sleater-Kinney were plotting their own tour - her thoughts became the source of much fan speculation.

Now she's been involved in a car crash. Tweeting to fans, Janet Weiss re-assured them, saying she was receiving treatment following the incident.

She wrote: "As thoroughly bummed as I am about canceling the shows, I’m also incredibly thankful the accident wasn't worse and so happy to be alive."

Janet Weiss continued: "I am lucky my injuries will heal and I’ll be back at it in a couple months. Hug your people and tell them you love them."
