George Michael - George Michael 'almost killed' by motorist

George Michael was almost ''killed'' by a passing motorist when he fell out of his car.

The 49-year-old singer was hospitalised last Thursday (16.05.13) following an accident on the UK's busy M1 motorway, which saw him tumble out of the passenger side of a Range Rover, and driver Ben Quince, 37, had to swerve frantically on the road to avoid running over the star.

Ben - who was driving directly behind the Range Rover - told The Sun newspaper: ''I suddenly saw the back door on the driver's side open.

''A body appeared and went bounce, bounce, bounce. He was spinning as he came towards me.

''I had to swerve left. I could have killed him.

''In my mirror I saw trucks and cars swerving to avoid him.''

Earlier this week, another motorist, Katherine Fox revealed she reversed her car to shield George from passing traffic while waiting for medical assistance.

She said: ''George didn't say anything, he just seemed in shock.

''He was sitting down against a car and in the arms of his friend.

''The guy holding him was quite scared. He kept saying to George, 'Are you all right mate?'

''I think George was lucky he didn't die.

''If he'd landed in the second lane he would have been hit by a car without a doubt.

''He was in the middle of the M1. I could have run him over.''

George is still in hospital as a precautionary measure.

A source said: ''He's progressing.''
