The singer apparently came closer to death than was initially implied.
Remember last weeks story that George Michael had gotten involved in a car accident on the M1 but managed to survive without any major injuries? Well it turns out Michael wasn't just in a near miss, but he practically stared death in the face as he fell from the car at speeds of around 70 mph, straight into the path of a swarm of oncoming vehicles.
Apparently, the 49-year-old singer was sitting in the passenger side of the car and was attempting to close his door properly, only to end up tumbling out of the Range Rover and into the fast lane of the M1 near St Albans, Hertfordshire. According to The Sun, a female driver was in the adjoining lane when the singer fell out and very nearly ran over him, telling the paper on Monday (May 20) how he was “lucky he didn’t die” as a number if vehicles swerved around and narrowly missed him.
The woman in question, 23-year-old Mini driver Katherine Fox, told the paper of how she was forced to perform an emergency stop and then swerve into the road so that her car could shield the singer as he lay in the middle of the road in a blood-soaked daze. She went on to say: “There was a nasty cut on his forehead and the back of his head. There was blood all down his face and on his teeth. He was breathing and conscious but in shock.
The good samaritain said that as soon as Michael took his tumble, the silver Ranger Rover he was riding in pulled over to the hard shoulder and two men got out and ran over to him. They waited with him until he was airlifted to safety where he was treated for head injuries and cuts and bruises. Police are currently investigating the incident.
George Michael has had his fair share of motoring mishaps
