    What saved Jewel presumably was her seat belt and a little luck.

    The pregnant singer-songwriter and her unborn child narrowly avoided serious injury after she was involved in a two-car accident Friday morning near Stephenville, Texas, where she and rodeo star hubby Ty Murray have a ranch.

    So what happened exactly?

    "Jewel was hit by a fire truck this morning in Texas. The singer was taken to the hospital and current medical tests conducted indicate that she and the baby are doing fine," her rep tells E! News.

    Per the Stephenville Empire-Tribune, the Pieces of You hitmaker's vehicle was still in one piece after getting hit by a Harbin Volunteer Fire Department fire/brush truck. The truck was responding to a grass fire and slammed into the passenger side of her car on Highway 67.

    We're glad to hear the singer, whose full name is Jewel Kilcher, and the baby are OK. The 36-year-old musician found out she was preggers on the first day of filming on her new Bravo reality series, Going Platinum, and the little one is due sometime towards the end of the year.
