George Michael was airlifted to hospital following a car crash. Reportedly the singer may have sustained a serious head injury.

Paramedics were called to the scene of the accident in the U.K. on Thursday, May 16, according to

49-year old Michael was a passenger in a Range Rover when the accident happened, but is “fine", reports his rep.   George sustained some superficial cuts to his face.

However, an ambulance spokesman claims the injuries Michael sustained were worse than “superficial cuts.” He said George sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilization and requited immobilization by land and air ambulance crews, he the was flown to hospital for further care.

The fact that Michael was airlifted from the scene of the crash could be a sign that his condition was critical, or a diversion from paparazzi. Nothing was said about the driver of the vehicle at press time, but authorities say there was no third party involved

Michael’s vehicular woes are well-documented. He crashed his car while under the influence in September 2010. He received an eight-week sentence, fined and issued a five-year driving ban.
