Bieber's mom, Pattie Mallette, took to her Twitter page to ask for prayers on Wednesday after the vehicle her parents, Bruce and Diane Dale, were driving careened out of control and flipped into a ditch.

In a post, she wrote, "My dad has broken ribs. Plz pray 4 him 4 quick healing! Count your blessings & forgive ur parents always. U never know what tomorrow holds!!!"

Officials at Ontario’s Provincial Police Department have since revealed details of the crash, saying the accident took place near the couple's home in Perth on Tuesday around 1 p.m. local time, shortly after the area's first snowfall.

Kees Wijnands, the media relations officer for Perth County, tells, "It was slushy snow. They got caught in the slush and it sucked them into the ditch. As a result, the vehicle, a small SUV, rolled. They weren’t going very fast. They got in the ditch and rolled. The vehicle hit some trees and shrubbery. It rolled and landed back on its wheels. The airbags deployed. They were seat-belted in. Bruce was driving. Bruce was taken to Stratford General Hospital with minor injuries as a precaution. Diane was OK. He was treated and released. They are happy at home again."
