George Michael’s bad luck with the road has struck yet again.

This time the 49-year-old singer was almost run over when he fell out of a Range Rover he was riding in on a stretch of highway located near St Albans, England.

The SUV was traveling at speeds of close to 70 mph, which meant his fall left him with a number of bloody lesions and torn clothes, though the injuries are said to be minor. 

He’s been recovering in hospital since the accident on Tuesday and is expected to be questioned by police soon.

Another driver, Katherine Fox, had to slam the brakes of her MINI upon seeing him fall onto the lane just in front of her. Fortunately, an off-duty policeman was also passing by and pulled over to help.

Speaking with the London Evening Standard (via Top Speed), Fox said she learned from the singer’s passengers that before he had fallen, he had tried to open the door and shut it again because it wasn’t closed properly.

Note, this is just the latest in a string of incidents involving the singer and the road.

Ranking up there with Lindsey Lohan for vehicular mishaps, Michael was sentenced to eight weeks in prison in 2010 for driving under the influence of drugs and crashing through a London shop window, and before that he received a two-year driving ban for also driving under the influence. And if that wasn’t enough, he was also found slumped in his car in 2006 after reportedly using some drugs.
