LONDON - The Voice U.K. coach will.i.am and former X Factor U.K. and U.S. judge Cheryl Cole were involved in a car accident in L.A., but tweeted Thursday that they are "fine."

"Car accidents are not dope…I'm glad I'm o.k," Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am said on Twitter. "We're fine. Cheryl Cole (and I) were coming back from the studio but she and I are fine...just a little wiplash.''

And Cole posted: "Don't worry me and @iamwill are fine, promise x."

Britain's The Voice Twitter feed sent them well wishes. "Get well soon, @iamwill and @CherylCole," the feed for the BBC show said.

The Guardian reported that the two music stars had left a recording studio in L.A. around 3:30 a.m. when will.i.am hit a parked car. Cole was in the passenger seat and was treated at the scene.

Will.i.am was taken to a hospital after suffering a bloody nose, the Guardian said. He left the scene in a neck brace, it said.
