George Michael - George Michael Injured In Car Crash

Singer George Michael has been injured in a car crash.

The former Wham! star, who was a passenger in the vehicle, received treatment for "cuts and bruises" following the accident on the M1 highway just north of London on Thursday evening (16May13).

No further details of his condition have been released.

Another man, believed to be the driver of the vehicle, suffered a head injury and was flown by air ambulance to a specialist trauma centre in the U.K. capital.

A spokeswoman for the Careless Whisper hitmaker says, "George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident yesterday evening, no third party was involved. He is being treated for superficial cuts and bruises but is fine. We have no further comment at this time."

Michael hit headlines in 2007 and 2010 after twice crashing his car while high on cannabis. He received a two-year driving ban for the first incident, when he ploughed into a set of traffic lights, and was jailed for eight weeks for the 2010 offence after smashing his car into a photography store. He was also banned from driving for five years.
