Sean Kingston was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami Sunday night after he crashed into a bridge while riding his personal watercraft.
Local 10 News in Miami, Florida is reporting that around 6 p.m. ET the “Beautiful Girls” singer and a female passenger crashed into the bridge which connects Miami’s Palm Island to the MacArthur Causeway.
Miami Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene and rushed Kingston to Jackson memorial where he is now. A spokesman with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission told Local 10 that Kingston and his female passenger “needed medical attention.”
According to Local 10 News the cause of the crash is still under investigation, but thus far it doesn’t seem that alcohol played a part in the accident.
TMZ is reporting that Kingston is being treated in the trauma ward and is in critical condition. MTV has not been able to confirm this information.
An unnamed rep for the singer issued this statement to TMZ: “Sean Kingston was in an accident today. No further details are available at the moment. He and his family thank everyone for the well-wishes.”
