Beenie Man On The Mend After Crash

Reggae dancehall star BEENIE MAN has almost fully recovered from his near-fatal car accident in his native Jamaica.

The DUDE hitmaker's punctured lungs are healing, and the cut that split open the side of his face is now just a dark scar.

He says, "I'm a fast healer, I'm a strong man."

In January (04), Beenie Man - real name MOSES DAVIS - crashed while driving on mountainous roads just outside Kingston.

By his own admission, he was speeding, and his wide-bodied HUMMER couldn't respond in time to a sudden detour in the road.

He recalls, "There was no time to turn or to stop so I went straight over. After the accident happened I looked in the mirror. I couldn't recognise myself. My face was big. My lip was big. So I just went back in the bed, laid down and didn't look in the mirror for three weeks, until my face came back to normal."

With only some residual tearing in his leg muscles stands left to heal, the star admits his brush with death has taught him that he can't take anything in his life for granted.

He notes, "I have to take life more serious. See my kids more. Spend more time with my mom. I almost lost everybody. They didn't almost lose me, I almost lost everybody."
