Cheryl Cole and Will.i.am 'fine' after late night car crash

30 AUGUST 2012

Pop star Cheryl Cole and The Voice UK judge Will.i.am are recovering after being involved in a car crash in LA.

The pair left a studio around 3am on Wednesday morning by car, after late night recording session.

With Cheryl in the passenger seat, Will.i.am crashed his £100,000 cadillac into a parked vehicle. The impact released the singer's airbag and gave him a bleeding nose. Meanwhile, Cheryl's side airbag failed to open which meant she was flung onto the dashboard.

After the police quickly assessed the incident, Will.i.am was quickly taken to Cedars Sinai hospital, were actress Halle Berry was recently treated after an accident on set. Although Cheryl suffered more severe bruising than her recording partner, she was treated on the scene and required no further attention.

A spokesperson for Cheryl told the Mail Online: "Cheryl is fine, she was shaken by the incident but she is okay."

The singers were also quick to reassure their fans that they were safe through Twitter.

Will.i.am tweeted: "Cheryl Cole (and I) were coming back from the studio but she and I are fine... just a little whiplash."

Cheryl Cole added: "Don't worry @iamwill are fine, promise x."

The good friends have also been warned by producer Michael Jurkovac to think about whether they should carry on their late night rehearsal stints.

He tweeted the pair saying: "Thank god neither of you got hurt. Worry about those all night studio sessions."

With a hectic upcoming schedule, Cheryl can't afford any more accidents. She's now committed to a Girl´s Aloud reunion after Sarah Harding revealed exclusively to HELLO! that the girls want to "do something special" to mark the girl band's tenth anniversary.

Cheryl also has her own solo commitments. The performer will be starting her A Million Lights arena tour October 3 with a string of dates across the UK and Ireland.

Will.i.am is juggling a busy schedule too, and has been breaking the record books after his new tune, Reach For The Stars, was the first ever single to be broadcast from Mars.

The experience was shared with the NASA team in Pasadena, California after it was relayed from the space agency's Curiosty rover.
