The gold truck Katy Perry commissioned to promote the release of her new album -- Prism -- was just hit by a drunk driver ... TMZ has learned.

The collision occurred 15 minutes ago near a truck stop in Pennsylvania.  We're told the driver of a semi-truck slammed into Katy's whip, causing substantial damage to the cab.  We're told the semi driver is in the process of being arrested for drunk driving.

Now the good news.  The precious cargo is fine ... because Katy wasn't in the truck at the time of the crash.  As for the others who were inside, we're told they're ok.

4:55 PM PT -- Law enforcement tells TMZ ... the accident occurred in a Walmart parking lot.

We're told the driver of Katy's truck was inside the Walmart when the collision happened.

Cops say the driver of the other truck initially fled the scene after striking the front cabin of Katy's truck ... but quickly returned to the parking lot after realizing it was the best decision.

Stories like this one make me wonder what kind of story TMZ would deem too boring to publish.

She has some goofy views of the world but I would still boink her no questions asked.

Maybe in the drunk driver's drunk azz mind he thought that maybe Katy was in the truck and he got "star struck" and plowed right into it. It could happen. Never know.

Coincidence?    

Katy Perry's new album is named "Prism" as in the spy scandal where everything you do online is watched?

I read online that a few music critics had a private listening of Katy's new album and they are saying it is going to be really good and she might even win a few Grammy awards.

Gotta admit I kind of got hooked on Katy's music in the last couple of years ... and I usually listen to mostly hard rock, alternative rock and some new wave/synthesizer pop from the 80s and 90s.

I ended up listening to both of Katy's CDs and I was impressed. Katy and the people she's working with know what they're doing.

Her two albums have a bunch of good songs. I think more of her songs should have been #1 hits. I think she has about 7 or 8 Billboard "Hot 100" #1 hits so far. That's awesome for just two albums.

If she can have five more #1s on this new album like she did for the last album she is going to be one of the biggest music megastars of all time ... like Michael Jackson in his prime huge.
