Peter Frampton

Injured in Car Wreck --

Blames 'Texting Woman'

7/31/2012 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0731_peter_frampton_article_tmzRock legend Peter Frampton was injured in a car accident earlier today ... and claims it's all because some "woman driver" was texting behind the wheel instead of watching the road.

Frampton vented about the situation on his Twitter page a few hours ago ... explaining, "Texting woman driver just ran into back of me while I was stationary in traffic 101 freeway."

He added, "Can u say whiplash? People put the phones down!"

The 62-year-old claims he sustained injuries to his neck and back ... and says he plans to go to the hospital later today ... after a flight.

FYI -- texting and driving is now illegal in California ... and violators are subject to some serious fines.

wtf is SO DIFFICULT about CALLING SOMEONE which takes MUCH LESS TIME than texting... ESPECIALLY when you are DRIVING A CAR and should have your EYES ON THE ROAD...

Eventually we all are going to evolve into Mutes because everything these days is texting, typing no TALKING on the phone and being personal

It's like driving blindfolded. A lot of people will be murdered this way. This is only the beginning. God forbid, when the numbers become sky high ( and they will) Then you'll see some serious penalties and enforcement.

Back and neck injuries? Going to a doctor after flying on an airplane? Back and neck injuries can't be that bad or he is just really stupid.

Texting could lead to serious accidents. He was lucky to not suffer any major injuries.
