Unhappy Daniel Bedingfield Injured In New Zealand Auto Crash :(

WELLINGTON, New Zealand - Grammy-nominated singer Daniel Bedingfield, who burst onto the British music scene with the album "Gotta Get Thru This," was hospitalized after a road accident in New Zealand, news media reported Saturday.

Bedingfield, 24, was hospitalized after the Jeep Cherokee he was driving rolled over Friday on a rural road near the North Island town of Whangarei, New Zealand television reported. The singer suffered neck injuries and lacerations.

A spokesman for Bedingfield said the singer would remain at Whangarei Base Hospital under observation for at least one week, New Zealand's TV3 reported.

Calls to the hospital went unanswered Saturday.

Bedingfield was vacationing in New Zealand at the time of the accident. The New Zealand-born star had to be cut out of the wreckage by firefighters.

Pop star Daniel Bedingfield hurt in Whangarei smash

03.01.2004
By BRIDGET CARTER
New Zealand-born pop star Daniel Bedingfield is in Whangarei Hospital with moderate injures after a car accident at Whangarei Heads yesterday.

Bedingfield was in a four-wheel-drive that rolled on Kauri Mountain Rd about 11am.

Police said a male was trapped in the vehicle with neck injuries, and Whangarei Hospital spokeswoman Alison Lees last night confirmed that the person was Bedingfield.

His parents were with him in hospital last night.

He is being kept there today and has asked for all media inquires to be dealt with through his manager.

Bedingfield, who is in New Zealand spending the holidays with his family, is famous for international number one hits Gotta Get Through This and If You're Not the One.

Although he was just three months old when he and his family first moved from New Zealand to England, Bedingfield maintains he is "very Kiwi".

He has previously said he has a New Zealand passport, his family are New Zealanders, he supports the All Blacks, drinks Lion Red and Monteith's and is a fan of New Zealand music.

A Whangarei firefighter who helped to rescue the singer said there were two men in the vehicle, both in their 20s.

They were driving towards Whangarei from Kauri Mountain Beach and seemed to have been staying out by the beach because there was a lot of gear in the car.

The driver, who was understood to be Bedingfield, appeared to have taken a corner too quickly in the gravel.

"I think they just came around the corner and lost it."

The car flipped and landed on its roof."

Singer Bedingfield in Stable Condition
(AP, 01/04/2004 9:34:00AM)

Grammy-nominated singer Daniel Bedingfield may remain in New Zealand for several months to recover from injuries suffered in a car accident, a hospital spokeswoman said Sunday.

Bedingfield ó who has had three No.1 hits on British dance charts ó was in stable condition and would likely be released at the end of next week, said Alison Lees, a Whangarei Base Hospital spokeswoman.

"But he won't be well enough to travel, so he'll be recuperating in New Zealand for two or three months," Lees told reporters. "He's damaged vertebrae in his neck but it hasn't affected his motor or sensory capabilities. He's a fairly lucky guy."

Bedingfield, 24, suffered head and neck injuries on Friday when the Jeep Cherokee he was driving from a music festival near Whangarei rolled on a rural road. He had to be cut out of the wreckage by firefighters.

Bedingfield's manager, Neale Easterby, said the singer would have to alter his immediate career plans.

"He had half a new album in the can before he left for New Zealand," he told New Zealand Press Association from Britain. "We'll just have to push stuff back."

"He's happy. He just thanks God he's alive."

The young garage artist burst onto the British dance scene in 2001 with the breakthrough album "Gotta Get Thru This." The single went to No.1 on British charts, and the album sold more than 3 million copies.

After being rejected by several record labels, Bedingfield recorded most of the album in his own bedroom.
