Australian model Miranda Kerr has thanked fans for their well wishes following her car accident in Los Angeles on Monday and assured followers she is "on the mend".
The Victoria's Secret stunner was a passenger in a vehicle when it was hit by an alleged drunk driver, and she was hospitalized to treat whiplash and back injuries.
Kerr is sporting a neck brace as she recovers from the accident, and she has returned to her Twitter.com page to update fans on her condition.
In a post on her page, she writes, "Thanks for all the messages of support, I'm on the mend!"
A man has been arrested in connection with the crash and is expected to be charged by police.
