Grant was hospitalized as a precaution
According to WSMV, Grant was cycling in Percy Warner Park when the accident happened. Her management team said she was wearing a helmet at the time, but she still suffered minor injuries. She was taken to Vanderbilt Hospital and treated for bruises and lacerations.
Grant was with a friend at the time of the accident, People detailed. Apparently Grant fell while riding a bike, although no further details of the fall itself have been released. The Christian singer was in stable condition and remained in hospital overnight Wednesday. Page Six reported that Grant decided to stay Wednesday night, a decision she made out of caution. She would remain in the hospital on Thursday evening for treatment and observation as well.
As her fans may recall, two years ago Grant underwent open-heart surgery to correct a condition she had had since birth. The rare condition, called partial abnormal pulmonary venous return, was not something Grant knew she had until it was discovered during a regular checkup.
