George Michael was airlifted to hospital today following a crash on the M1 motorway, with the singer's Range Rover veering into a roadside barrier Wednesday (May 15) evening. The former Wham! singer was rushed to hospital with head injuries, but is expected to make a full recovery, with a spokesperson for the singer saying he only sustained "superficial cuts" and was "fine."

Apparently, Michael was only a passenger in the car when it crashed close to junction 6A, near St Albans, Hertfordshire. No other vehicles were involved in the crash and the driver, who's name has been witheld, is believed to have escaped uninjured. Michael's spokesperson, Connie Filippello, revealed on Thursday (May 16): "George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident yesterday evening. No third party was involved. We have no further comment at this time."

No arrests have been made in connection with the crash, however police were forced to close the northbound carriageway for an hour, whilst emergency services dealt with the aftermath and cleared debris. A spokesperson for Hertfordshire Police said yesterday; "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."

George has become synonymous with car accidents recently, being arrested and handed an eight-week sentence for crashing his car while under the influence of cannabis in September 2010. He was arrested in July the same year after crashing his car Range Rover into a branch of photography shop Snappy Snaps in London.
