Thankfully, he was taken to hospital and it was believed he would be okay.

The US site reported that former band teacher Gary was hit while he was crossing a busy street on foot near the San Fernando Valley.

He was transported to a nearby emergency room, and it's said that his condition is stable.

It's thought he'll make a full recovery from his injuries.

Meghan, 26, is very close to her dad, with him having mentored her towards becoming the star she is today.

He showed her the ropes in the music game and is a piano player himself. It's thought he lent his talent to one of her early EPs by being featured on two tracks.

Just last month, Gary made a surprise appearance alongside Meghan on The Voice.

Meghan was chatting to her fellow coaches, Olly Murs, Will.i.am and Tom Jones about her dad when they suggested he got up on stage to show off his piano playing skills.

Gary didn't seem keen at first but after some encouragement from the audience, he got up to play.

An excited Meghan said she wanted to spin her chair for her dad.

With some help from the live band, Gary played Tom's Shake Rattle & Roll as the singer and the rest of the coaches joined in for an impromptu singalong.

Meghan looked ecstatic as she watched her dad perform, cheering for him and clapping as the audience went wild.
