(MIAMI) -- Singer Sean Kingston was hospitalized in Miami, Florida Sunday night after a personal watercraft he was riding on crashed into a bridge.

According to ABC News affiliate WPLG-TV in Miami, Kingston collided with the bridge that connects Miami Beach's Palm Island to the MacArthur Causeway around 6 p.m.  Upon impact, the 21-year-old singer and a female passenger were ejected from the watercraft and landed in the water, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission spokesman Jorge Pino.

Both Kingston, who's known for his hits "Beautiful Girls" and "Fire Burning," and the passenger were hospitalized with injuries.

The cause of the crash is not yet known, but Pino said, "Nothing at this point would indicate that alcohol played a role in this accident."

An investigation is currently underway.
