R&B star D'Angelo was hospitalized in critical condition last week in a Richmond, Va. hospital as a result of a September 19 car accident. Per Virginia State Police Sgt. Kevin Barrick, the 2003 Hummer sport utility vehicle in which D'Angelo was traveling accidentally swerved off a road outside his hometown of Richmond, West Virginia, and hit a fence. He wasn't wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the car.
Elsewhere, another passenger in the car named Lynne Sellers was injured in the accident but the status of her condition was unknown. After being treated for serious injuries, D'Angelo luckily felt better and is eager to get back to the studio. "I banged up my ribs but other than that I'm fine," the star told The Associated Press in a phone interview Monday. As stated by his lawyer and business adviser, L. Londell McMillan, "He has no cast on his body. He's walking around and he's certainly talking. He is anxious to finish the recording of his soul masterpiece that the world has patiently awaited." Get well soon bro.
