Sean Kingston, the Miami-born hip-hop crooner who once graced our cover, was in a serious jet ski accident off of Miami Beach today, according to multiple reports. The injuries were so severe that Kingston is reportedly being treated in a nearby trauma unit.

According to Local10.com, Kingston was on the jet ski with a female passenger this evening at about 6 p.m. when he crashed into the bridge that connects Palm Island to the MacArthur Causeway.

Kingston and the female passenger were rescued by a nearby boater, before the City of Miami Fire Rescue rushed the pair to the hospital. Kingston is believed to be in critical condition.

"Sean Kingston was in an accident today," his rep tells TMZ. "No further details are available at the moment. He and his family thank everyone for the well-wishes."

This is Darwinism. Stupid idiots run jet skis into bridges.

Will a head injury affect his music?

Black guy on a jet ski? That will always end badly.

I hope his passenger sues the crap out of him, if he survives.

Nothing accidental about slamming into a bridge in broad day light. Bridges are no wake zones throughout the entire intracoastal. He would have had to have been going way too fast to be adhering to the no wake zone speed limits to be in critical condition. I have nothing, no sympathy for an irresponsible wreck like this. Stupidity is what it is. I couldn't even be kind enough to say this was an error in judgment. It's not like you can't see a bridge and to be going that fast is even more irresponsible with a passenger on board. Every holiday we get a story like this, makes me wonder how much alcohol was involved or even drugs ? If sober, just smh ?

I feel for the passenger as a victim that they entrusted their life to an incompetent water craft operator. How is she doing after this ?

if he wasnt playing by the rules then yea fuck him eveolution at work. however, if it was an accident which can happen like a passing boat pushed him he slipped trying to get onto a ledge or something it sucks and i wish him the best. but if he had some girl with him and hes all like ugggghhhh sean kingston then yea he got what he deserved.

This man is in critical condition! You have some nerve to come on this article with such hateful words. Go get a life. I'm keeping you both (sean and passenger) in my prayers. As far as you, james camp, seek jesus that helps!

Jesus has nothing to do with this. Leave Jesus out of it. I've driven/rode jetskis from time to time, trust me when I post this, you'd have to be totally incompetent to hit a bridge and I'm the guy that surfs the wake behind the larger yachts without falling off the watercraft. There's having fun and knowing what these machines can do and then there's riding one into a bridge. Like I posted this was in broad daylight, no foggy AM/PM, no driving rain to obscure visibilty.

Wow you are very thoughtful! I may not agree with everything that Sean Kingston does but I sure am not going to pass judgment like this.
