Joe is said to have walked into a Panda Express which was located near where the accident took place and had a seat. He was said to be in noticeable pain, per witnesses.

Then it was reported that he complained of chest pains so paramedics put him in an ambulance and quickly got him to a hospital.

At the time of the accident, it was not clear if anyone else had suffered injuries.

However, Joe was recently released from the hospital and claimed to be doing fine.

He revealed that he "got out of it without a scratch," but that his assistant, who was driving, ended up with a broken thumb.

Joe said that they were heading home for lunch, and then added, "All is well. Thank God."

The Jackson family patriarch has been in the hospital off and on a bit over the last few years due to various health issues.

Last year, he was admitted for medical treatment after suddenly coming down with a high fever.

In 2015, Joe was sent to the hospital during a Brazil vacation after suffering from a stroke.

This was just one of many that he had suffered in recent years, and it prompted his daughter, pop superstar Janet Jackson, to put her tour rehearsals on hold so that she could be by his side.

Luckily, Joe emerged from this accident unscathed and we wish him all the best.
