D'Angelo, 31, born Michael Eugene Archer, was in a 2003 Hummer sport utility vehicle on Sept. 19 when it crossed the roadway and struck a fence, ejecting the singer, State Police Sgt. Kevin Barrick said Monday. Archer wasn't wearing a seat restraint, Barrick said.

Barrick said Archer was initially listed in critical condition, but that no further information is available.

Officials at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, where the Grammy-winning artist was flown after the wreck, said the family had asked that his condition not be released.

Another person, Lynne Sellers, also was injured in the wreck. Police couldn't say which of the two had been driving.

The accident occurred in Powhatan County, a bedroom community west of the city. Archer lives in Midlothian, just outside Richmond.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, Barrick said.

Known for hits such as "Brown Sugar" and a cover of Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'," Archer rode a wave of popularity that culminated with a Grammy in 2001 for best male R&B vocal performance for "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" from the album "Voodoo," which won a Grammy for best R&B album.

In April, the singer was fined $250 and given a 90-day suspended jail term on a driving under the influence of alcohol conviction. His driver's license was suspended for one year.

On a marijuana charge, Archer was fined $50 and given a 10-day suspended jail term. His driver's license was suspended for an additional six months.

Earlier this month, he received a suspended prison sentence after being convicted of cocaine possession. Archer had faced three years in prison.

Singer D'Angelo seriously injured in car crash
By Jonathan CohenMon Sep 26, 2:58 PM ET



Vocalist D'Angelo (real name: Michael Archer) is in a Richmond, Va., hospital being treated for serious injuries suffered during a September 19 car accident.

According to a statement from the Virginia State Police, the SUV in which D'Angelo was traveling swerved off a road and into fence before flipping over.

The artist was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the car. According to police, it is not yet known if D'Angelo was driving; another person in the vehicle, Lynne Sellers, was also injured in the accident but the status of her condition was unknown.

News of the crash began to spread late last week after the Roots' ?uestlove posted early details on the group's Web site (http://www.okayplayer.com), but the message was quickly removed.

Just prior to the accident, D'Angelo was given a three-year suspended sentence after pleading no contest to felony cocaine possession in Chesterfield Circuit Court. As previously reported, he was arrested near Richmond in January after police found marijuana and cocaine in his car during a traffic stop.

D'Angelo received a 100-day suspended sentence in April stemming from the marijuana and driving under the influence charges.

Sony BMG's J Records recently acquired D'Angelo's contract from Virgin, which released his two studio albums. The artist has been largely inactive since his 2000 effort "Voodoo," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200.

D'Angelo Ready to Record After SUV Crash
58 minutes ago



R&B crooner D'Angelo, who won over America with his '90s soul ballads only to fade after bouts with the law and drugs, said he's ready to record after a car crash left him hospitalized for several days.

"I banged up my ribs but other than that I'm fine," he told The Associated Press in a phone interview Monday from his suburban home. Out of the hospital for two days, the singer said he's eager to get back to the studio.

D'Angelo, 31, born Michael Eugene Archer, was in a 2003 Hummer on Sept. 19 when it crossed the roadway and struck a fence. He was ejected from the sport utility vehicle, State Police Sgt. Kevin Barrick said Monday. Archer wasn't wearing a seat restraint, Barrick said.

Barrick said Archer was initially listed in critical condition.

Archer and his lawyer/business adviser, L. Londell McMillan, said the injuries weren't serious. They said he was banged up and bruised but apparently had no broken bones.

"He has no cast on his body," McMillan said in a phone interview from his New York office. "He's walking around and he's certainly talking."

In an earlier statement, McMillan said, "He is anxious to finish the recording of his soul masterpiece that the world has patiently awaited."

Lynne Sellers also was injured in the wreck, authorities said. D'Angelo said she was at the wheel of the SUV. As for other aspects of the accident, he said, "To tell you the truth, I don't really remember anything."

The accident occurred in Powhatan County, a bedroom community west of the city. Archer lives in Midlothian, just outside Richmond.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, Barrick said.

Known for hits such as "Brown Sugar" and a cover of Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin'," Archer rode a wave of popularity that culminated with a Grammy in 2001 for best male R&B vocal performance for "Untitled (How Does It Feel)" from the album "Voodoo," which won a Grammy for best R&B album.

In April, the singer was fined $250 and given a 90-day suspended jail term on a driving under the influence of alcohol conviction. His driver's license was suspended for one year.

On a marijuana charge, Archer was fined $50 and given a 10-day suspended jail term. His driver's license was suspended for an additional six months.

oh and I don't a bit more believe the girl was at the wheel of the vehicle. The only way I would believe that is if the police found her behind the wheel when they came to rescue them.
