Jewel had a close call on Friday morning.

The singer, 36, who is expecting her first child with husband Ty Murray, was involved in an accident with a fire truck, her rep confirms.

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

According to TMZ.com, the expectant mom's car was hit on the passenger side by the truck.





Jewel revealed to PEOPLE in January that she and Murray, who tried for two years to have a child together, are having a boy.

"I have to admit, I was doing a little dance on our way out of the doctor's 
office when we found out!" Murray, a nine-time World Champion rodeo
 cowboy, told PEOPLE at the time.
