George Michael Hospitalized After Car Crash in UK
George Michael has been hospitalized for "superficial cuts and bruises" after a car accident in England on Thursday night.
The 49-year-old singer suffered minor injuries in a car crash Thursday night on the crowded M1 motorway near St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, according to E Online.
A statement issued Friday by Michael's spokesman Connie Filippello said he was a passenger in a Range Rover that was involved in a traffic accident. "No third party was involved," Fillippello said. "We have no further comment at this time." He indicated that Michael was "fine" apart from a few scrapes and bruises.
An ambulance spokesman told the BBC that a man in his 40s, presumably Michael, sustained a head injury and was airlifted to a nearby hospital.
No arrests have been made but police will continue to investigate the crash.
Michael was given a five-year driving ban in 2010 after crashing his Range Rover into a photo store called Snappy Snaps. Since he was under the influence of cannabis, he was also given an eight-week sentence and a fine.
The "Faith" singer also had a near-death experience last year after a serious bout of pneumonia.
