George Michael - George Michael's Representative: 'Singer Is Making Good Progress'

Singer George Michael is making "good progress" five days after suffering minor head injuries in a car accident.

The former Wham! star was airlifted to a medical centre with cuts and bruises on 16 May (13) after a horrific road accident on the M1 motorway just north of London. The Father Figure singer reportedly fell from an open door of the vehicle as it travelled at speeds of 70 miles (112 kilometres)-per-hour.

A probe into in the incident is currently ongoing, and now his publicist has spoken out to assure fans Michael is on the mend.

A statement released from the 49 year old's representative on Tuesday reads (21May13), "I can confirm that George remains in hospital but purely as a standard precaution for observation because he suffered some bumps and cuts to his head. But he's making good progress, he's fine and he's really looking forward to getting home."

This is the latest in a string of car problems for the Careless Whisper hitmaker - he hit headlines in 2007 and 2010 after twice crashing his vehicle while high on cannabis. He was later jailed for eight weeks and hit with a five-year driving ban, which expires in 2015.
