The New Year didn’t get off to a great start for “American Idol” Season 8 winner Kris Allen after he and his pregnant wife were involved in a head-on collision.

Allen suffered a broken arm but his wife Katy, unborn child and dog Zorro were all unharmed during the New Year’s Day crash, according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter.

The Idol winner’s mother took to twitter to update people on her son and daughter-in-law’s condition: "Kristopher and Katy are both pretty beat up but ALIVE! Thank you Jesus!” she tweeted. “They are setting his arm now and will have surgery tomorrow.”

She later updated her status saying, “(Kris is) in a lot of pain, arm broke, may not play guitar for a while. Prayers welcome please!”

Allen also took to the social networking site to let fans know he was OK and to thank car company Ford (he received a Ford car as part of his Idol win in 2009).

"Thank you @Ford for equipping me with a car that kept my whole family @katyallen @Zorropup and the little one we have on the way safe," Allen tweeted.

Allen also let his fans know the accident will not affect his “Out Alive” tour, set to begin this month.

“Don't worry everyone I may have broken my wrist but the #OutAliveTour is still on,” he tweeted.
