American Idol season eight winner Kris Allen was injured in a head-on car collision on New Year’s Day, leaving the singer with a broken arm.

“From Kris: he’s in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please!” his mother Kimberly (who was also in the car along with his wife Katy and their dog Zorro) Tweeted alongside a pic of her son at the hospital.

She added: “Kristopher and Katy are both pretty beat up but ALIVE! Thank you Jesus! They are setting his arm now and will have surgery tomorrow.”

While he may have to sideline his guitar skills, the “Vision of Love” singer assured fans that he still plans to hit the road for his upcoming “Out Alive” tour, which starts this month.

“Don’t worry everyone I may have broken my wrist but the #OutAliveTour is still on,” he shared on Twitter.

And as he updated his fans on his condition, he couldn’t help share the good news: he and his wife are expecting their first baby together.

“Thank you @ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family @katyallen @ZorroPup and the little one we have on the way safe,” he shared.
