IN THIS MOMENT Frontwoman Involved In Car Crash

Vocalist Maria Brink of Southern California's IN THIS MOMENT revealed in a Facebook posting that she was involved in a motor vehicle accident yesterday (Tuesday, August 31) that left her with injuries that required a trip to the hospital.

"I had a pretty intense day," she wrote on Tuesday. "I was in a car crash. We got hit by a dude going 55 [miles per hour] and we were stopped at light." She added, "I am home from hospital now and fine, though. I have whiplash and a sprained wrist. I am smiling and laughing at a funny movie and on pain meds. I am grateful. It could have been so much worse!"

In a new Facebook posting from today, she wrote, "I feel bright and great today. I don't even need pain meds, so no more worries about me at all."

IN THIS MOMENT's new album, "A Star-Crossed Wasteland", sold 10,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 40 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The band's sophomore CD, "The Dream", opened with more than 8,000 copies back in October 2008 to land at No. 70.

"A Star-Crossed Wasteland" was released on July 13 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at The Wolves Den studio in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH).
