Chuck Palahniuk Survives Car Accident

Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk survived a freak car accident. According to UPI.com, Palahniuk (pictured, via) was sitting in his car parked on a driveway when a semi trailer hit his vehicle on Friday.

Here’s more from the article: “The semi’s driver took a curve too fast, tipping his trailer. The trailer slid toward Palahniuk’s car and struck the side of it before coming to rest blocking the westbound lanes.”

His car was destroyed, but Palahniuk didn’t go to the hospital. The driver also escaped unharmed, but was ticketed for his negligence. His webmaster tweeted: “Spoke to Chuck last night. He’s fine and is recovering. Thank you all for your well wishes.”

Palahniuk is scheduled to embark on a west coast tour to promote an updated version of his backlist title Invisible Monsters Remix. This book will be released in hardcover on June 11th. (via Sarah Weinman)
