Singer Sean Kingston Crashes Watercraft In Fla.

Authorities say rapper Sean Kingston is hospitalized after crashing a personal watercraft into a Miami Beach bridge.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino says Kingston and a female passenger were injured when the watercraft hit the Palm Island Bridge around 6 p.m. Sunday.

Pino says both were hospitalized early Monday at Ryder Trauma Center, but he didn't know their conditions.

Pino says authorities are investigating the crash, and "nothing at this point would indicate that alcohol played a role."

A representative for his label Epic Records confirmed early Monday that Kingston was in a crash and "was now stabilized." No further information was provided.

Kingston rose to fame with his 2007 hit "Beautiful Girls" and was also featured on songs by artists including Justin Bieber.

    He should have been wearing a LIFE VEST! The way he drives a jet ski - HE SHOULD WEAR A HELMET TOO!

    I am 45 yo white female and enjoy listening to Sean Kingston's music. I even made a party CD with several of his songs on it back in 2007. I don't wish harm on anyone. I hope he pulls thru and is OK.

    I'm thinking maybe this was a publicity "stunt" that went wrong. But on the bright side, he did get on the news.

    The keyword is dumb. Look it up. Is the big baby mad because you're not famous? Ah here have a cookie.

    I don't know if you ever been on this site before, but they always put famous people on this site and nobody ever had a problem with it. Check out the stories for Dancing with the Stars and The Celebrity Apprentice.

    Who is this? Is he famous? Is he from NC? Maybe it's just me but this just doesn't seem like news eastern NC would want to know...

    *for those who ask* He's sings Dance Hall Reggae, so I guess that makes him both, rapper and singer. He is very popular with teens. He is typically a positive person. I wonder how he hit a bridge though...oh well I pray he's ok.

      Maybe you cleared that up with whatever Dance Hall Reggae is.
