Pop singer Sean Kingston has been hospitalized in Miami and is reported to be in a "critical condition" after a jet skiing accident in which he collided with one of the city's bridges.

The 21 year-old, along with one other female passenger, was rushed to hospital last night (May 29) after crashing into a bridge at 6pm local time (11pm BST), according to US gossip website

Reports suggest that police have already ruled out alcohol playing a role in the accident, with details of what happened have been yet to be formally released. A spokesperson for the singer said of the incident: "Sean Kingston was in an accident today. No further details are available at the moment. He and his family thank everyone for the well-wishes."

Rapper Nicki Minaj is among those to have offered their support to Kingston. She wrote on her Twitter page "My love and prayers are with Sean Kingston and his family."

The singer had a UK Number One single in 2007 with his track 'Beautiful Girls' and was most recently featured duetting with Justin Bieber on his hit single 'Eenie Meanie'.
