George Michael has miraculously survived a bizarre motorway incident after falling out the passenger side of a vehicle travelling over 100km/h.
The accident occurred last Thursday on the M1 motorway northwest of London. At the time Sky News reported the incident as a car crash involving no other vehicles that resulted in one man being airlifted to hospital.
Publicist Connie Filippello released a statement that revealed it was actually Michael involved in the accident and that the Careless Whisper singer suffered “superficial cuts and bruises”.
Since that time eyewitness Katherine Fox told The Sun what she saw driving behind a silver Range Rover when a man suddenly fell from the moving car and onto the carriageway.
Stopping to assist the man, who turned out to be the 49-year-old Michael, Fox said the car carrying Michael pulled over and 2 of Michael’s friends ran to his aid:
“I saw blood everywhere and a man on the ground. I thought someone had run across the road and been hit. I asked what had gone on and was told he tried to open the car door and shut it again because it wasn’t shut properly and apparently fell out at 70mph…
“There was a nasty cut on his forehead and the back of his head. There was blood all down his face and on his teeth. He was breathing and conscious but in shock.
“He was lucky he didn’t die.”
Entertainment Wise reported yesterday that Michael was discharged from hospital only days after accident.
Reports that Michael was heard to cry “Freedom!” as he exited the vehicle remain unconfirmed.
