George Michael Injured in Car Crash

GeorgeMichael.comGeorge Michael and cars just don't mix.  The BBC reports that the singer was airlifted to the hospital Thursday after suffering a head injury in a car crash in the U.K.

A statement posted on George's Facebook page says that he is "fine" and only has "superficial cuts" as a result of the accident, which took place in Hertfordshire.  The singer wasn't driving the car; he was a passenger, and the statement adds that "no third party was involved."

A police spokesperson, meanwhile, told the BBC, "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."

This isn't the first time that George has been in a car crash.  In 2010, he was fined, sentenced to eight weeks in prison and banned from driving for five years after he crashed his car into a store while under the influence of marijuana.

In recent years, George has had some serious health issues.  He was hospitalized with pneumonia in 2011, and for a time was in a coma.  He later claimed he almost died.
