Things continue to improve for Sean Kingston.

The popular singer won't be facing a lawsuit as the result of his jet skiing accident last weekend, and now various sources confirm that his condition is getting better every day.

While still in a Miami hospital, Kingston is awake and alert, communicating with visitors via head movements and sign language.

The artist, who has been the subject of encouraging, wish-filled Tweets from stars such as Rihanna and Justin Bieber, was initially treated in the trauma ward and remains in critical condition.

Kingston will likely remain under doctor's care for a couple more weeks, and we'll provide updates as time goes on, but this is positive news for fans of the star.

Some good news today for Sean Kingston and his fans.

First, a detailed account of the singer's injuries have been released. Kingston's label, Epic Records, reports that its client is in "critical but stable condition" and is "aware of what is going on around him, sedated but fully conscious."

The artist suffered a broken jaw and fractured wrist, among other lesser ailments, in Sunday's jet ski crash. He's expected to make a full recovery in about six weeks.

When that takes place, Kingston won't need to worry about any legal repercussions.

Cassandra Sanchez, who was a passenger on the singer's watercraft and said she urged her friend to slow down, tells TMZ she won't be pursuing a case against her pal.

"I know this whole thing was just an accident," Sanchez says. "I won't be pressing any type of charges or hiring a lawyer. Sean is a good guy."

Just prior to the jet skiing accident that landed Sean Kingston in the ICU, Cassandra Sanchez had the best, most unfortunate seat possible on Sunday evening: she was sitting alongside the singer.

In her first interview since the incident, Sanchez spoke to TMZ and said she urged her friend to slow down during the ride.

As Kingston raced toward a Miami Beach bridge, Sanchez recounts her reaction, as she screamed at the artist: "We can't fit under there! Are we going to try and go under there? Sean, stop!"

Kingston tried to swerve at the last moment, but crashed into the structure. Sanchez next remembers waking up in pain, while Sean was "coughing up blood, foam and pink stuff" and repeating the words, "I'm hurting. I'm hurting."

With his condition stabilized, a new report outlines just how Sean Kingston ended up in a Miami area hospital Sunday night.

Speaking on the jet skiing accident, Jorge Pino - spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, which leads the investigation - told reporters yesterday:

"Sean was heading west from the MacArthur Causeway and Miami Beach Islands when his personal watercraft collided with the bridge, and he and his female passenger ended up in the water. A good Samaritan tended to the two of them until Miami Beach Fire Rescue arrived and saw there were injuries."

While there are no indications that alcohol played a role in the incident, Pino acknowledges that "nine times out of 10, recklessness on the water involving personal watercraft contributes to accidents."

Kingston was said to be "puking blood" at the scene, while his 23-year old companion was not injured.

As we wait to learn more, other stars have spoken out and offered their prayers to Kingston. Among them, Justin Bieber, who collaborated with the artist on "Eenie Meeni."

"Got my friend @seankingston in my prayers tonight," he Tweeted. "a true friend and big bro. please keep him in your prayers tonight as well."

A news outlet reports that Kingston's jet ski crashed into a bridge around 6 p.m. local time. He and his passenger were then transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital and the artist was placed in the trauma ward. He's now in critical condition in the ICU.

His rep could offer no follow-up to the events, simply stating: "Sean Kingston was in an accident today. No further details are available at the moment. He and his family thank everyone for the well-wishes."

Among celebrities Tweeting to the star have been Rihanna - who wrote "Sean we praying for u baby" - and Nicki Minaj, who said: "My love & prayers are with Sean Kingston & his family."

THG echoes those sentiments.
