Ms Dynamite Involved In High-speed Car Crash
Award-winning singer MS DYNAMITE is recovering after she was involved in a terrifying high speed car crash while filming the finale for reality TV show THE RACE in England. Fellow celebrity contestant BRIAN JOHNSON, the lead singer of rock group AC DC, clipped the back of the singer's race car at Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire, sending it spinning out of control at 100 miles per hour (161 kilometres per hour). A spokesman for network Sky One said the high-speed collision on Sunday afternoon (12NOV06) sent her car spinning down the track for about 50 metres before it eventually came to a halt. Paramedics rushed to the scene and the singer, real name NIOMI MCLEAN-DALEY, who was described as conscious and talking, was treated at the track's medical centre. The spokesman said the R+B star had been airlifted to Northampton General Hospital as a precautionary measure, but had not suffered any serious injuries. Ms Dynamite is the second celebrity to be injured while taking part in the reality show. Last Tuesday (07NOV06), INGRID TARRANT, the estranged wife of WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE host CHRIS TARRANT, was treated by paramedics at Silverstone after flipping a three-ton truck. A spokesman for the show said of the latest crash, "It was quite a violent collision, but the paramedics were straight on the scene. "She doesn't appear to have any serious injuries, but she is bound to be very shaken."
