Reggae singer Sophia Brown is today counting her blessings as she walked away without serious injuries from a gruesome motor vehicle accident in the US over the weekend.

Brown, who was the driver of the vehicle, and was accompanied by her cameraman and make-up artist, said she was on her way to perform at the Jamaica Day Reggae Festival in Baltimore.

In recalling the accident, Brown told The Gleaner that "while on our way to the festival from the hotel, upon reaching Exit 87A on Baltimore Freeway I70, the only thing I can remember is something slammed in the back of our rental car, spinning it out of control across another busy highway and we ended up in a ditch. My videographer got knocked unconscious; my make-up artist, Shantal, got thrown forward to the front of the vehicle as I was driving. I didn't know myself or what just happened, all I knew I was in a ditch. The car was totalled."

Brown was told not to perform.

The Give Me That Good Love singer is currently in the US promoting her latest album, Change.
