Motor city rocker Mitch Ryder and his wife were involved in a head-on crash when their vehicle collided with a suspected drunken driver, according to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

Mitch was returning home from a performance in Auburn Hills on Friday night when the accident occurred around midnight.

He was driving his car when a pickup truck headed in the opposite direction suddenly swerved across the center lane into Mitch's lane. "I saw the headlights going for us and I had a split second to either drive towards oncoming traffic or towards the ditch," he said. Mitch went for the ditch.

The pickup slammed into the front of the car. Mitch’s wife, Megan, suffered minor injuries and was hospitalized until Sunday night for observation.

Mitch is okay and was singing at a friend's birthday party on Saturday.
