’80s singer George Michael, who nearly died from pneumonia in late 2011, was airlifted to a hospital after sustaining a head injury following a car crash.

Paramedics were called to the scene of the accident in the U.K. on Thursday, May 16.

According to The BBC, a Michael spokesperson said that the ‘Faith’ singer, 49, had indeed been in an accident as a passenger in a Range Rover, but that he was “fine, as his injuries were “superficial cuts.”

However, ambulance spokesman Gary Sanderson offered other details, which made it sound like the injuries sustained were worse than “superficial cuts.” He said, “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.”

When you are airlifted to receive care, things are usually critical, so there is a bit of disconnect there. Nothing was said about the driver of the vehicle at press time.

There was no third party involved in the traffic accident. Authorities issued a statement, saying, “The exact circumstances of what happened are unclear at this time and until further investigations have been carried out, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further.”

Michael’s vehicular woes are well-documented. He crashed his car while under the influence – of cannabis! — in September 2010. He received an eight-week sentence, which was a slap on the wrist. He was also fined and issued a five-year driving ban.

We hope the singer is ok, no matter how serious or superficial the injury.
