Soul singer D’Angelo was critically injured in a recent Sept. 19 accident in Powhatan County, Virginia.

Virginia State Police said D'Angelo, born Michael Eugene Archer, was driving on Route 711 when his 2003 hummer ran off the road, struck a fence and flipped over.

D’Angelo was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle. Police have yet-to-determine who was driving the vehicle when it crashed.

A passenger in the SUV, Lynne Sellers, was also injured.

D’Angelo and Sellers were taken to VCU Medical center. As of press time, no further information was available about their medical conditions.

Police are still investigating the crash.

In April of 2005, D’Angelo pleaded guilty to marijuana possession and driving under the influence of alcohol, stemming from an earlier infraction in Richmond, Virginia.

His driver’s license was suspended for a year for the DUI conviction and for an additional six months for the marijuana charge.
