The singer's rep says the incident took place around 5:50 local time in England and that Michael was the passenger in a Range Rover that got into an accident along M1, a major British freeway.

Few other details are available at this time.

Said a rep for the emergency response crew via statement:

"[George] sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilisation and immobilization by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to the hospital for further care."

Despite the traumatic nature of the airlifting, Michael's spokesperson says the artist only has "superficial cuts" and there is no long-term damage.

No word yet on who was behind the wheel or what caused the crash.

In July 2010, Michael crashed his own car into a London building.
