Simon Cowell was rushed to hospital following a horror e-bike accident in London last week.
The Britain’s Got Talent star, 62, is reportedly “lucky to be alive” after he was sent flying over the handlebars of the bike.
It comes 18 months after Simon previously broke his back during a similar incident in Malibu in 2020.
Simon Cowell rushed to hospital after e-bike accident
According to reports, Simon was riding a Das Spitzing Evolution S-Pedelec bike at the time of the crash.
He later fell off the bike, which has top speeds of 27mph, after the wheels “suddenly went from under him”.
Simon, who reportedly wasn’t wearing a helmet, was attended to by paramedics.
After being sent to hospital, the music mogul was released with a cast on his arm.
It’s believed that Simon suffered from a broken arm, suspected concussion and facial cuts.
An insider told The Sun: “Simon is lucky to be alive. He was pedalling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch.
“He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road.”
ED! has approached Simon’s representative for comment.
Meanwhile, fans have reached out to support the star following the crash.
