George Michael remains under observation in a London hospital following his car accident last week.

The singer was airlifted to a specialist trauma centre with a head injury following a motorway accident in the UK last week.

A spokesperson for the star revealed George will remain at the London hospital for the time being.

"[He's] making good progress," the spokesperson told the BBC. "Following the traffic accident on Thursday, we can confirm that he is still in hospital. We are keen to stress it's purely as a precaution for observation. He did suffer a couple of bumps and bruises to the head and that's why they are keeping him in - to keep an eye on him. He is doing better. He is making good progress and is looking forward to getting out."

Gary Sanderson, of the East of England Ambulance Service, confirmed that they had treated a man in his 40s after a car accident last week.

The spokesperson for the medics added that George was "fully conscious" throughout the incident.

"The patient was on the road when paramedics arrived," Gary said.

"The patient required further assessments at a specialist trauma centre after he received a head injury. He was fully conscious throughout his treatment at the scene and flight to hospital and the injuries were deemed non-life threatening."

An eye witness at the scene has come forward to share what she saw during the incident.

Katherine Fox was driving behind the Range Rover that the 49-year-old international super star was travelling in when she saw him fall out of the passenger door of the vehicle.

She has recalled slamming on her brakes in a desperate attempt to avoid running him over.

“He was lucky he didn’t die,” she told British newspaper The Sun.

“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.”
