George Michael, 49, is being treated for ‘minor cuts and bruises’ sustained from a car accident inside a Range Rover on a motorway outside of London Thursday night.
A publicist for George Michael stated,
George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident
yesterday evening. No third party was involved. We have no further comment at this time
It is still unclear whether George Michael himself or the driver of the vehicle in question was airlifted from the scene and taken to a hospital for further treatment.
An ambulance rep gave the following:
The man who we believe to be in his 40s sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilization and immobilization by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to hospital for further care.
The “Faith” singer has been involved in a few accidents in the past where he spent time in jail, and even had a major health scare where he lost consciousness from a deathly bout of pneumonia in 2011.
Thankfully, this time his accident was nothing too serious and he was the passenger and not a driver under the influence again.
And well, since this article is about George Michael (one of my favorite singers of all-time), it gives me the perfect excuse to play one of his tunes.
