Simon Cowell Rushed To Hospital After E-Bike Crash: ‘Lucky To Be Alive’

Simon Cowell and e-bikes do not get along!

According to reports, the American Idol host was hospitalized last week after he was sent flying over the handlebars of his e-bike when he hit a wet patch.

A source told The Sun.:

“Simon is lucky to be alive. He was pedaling 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. ”

Oh no!

Three onlookers stopped the traffic so the father-of-one would not get run over. He was then rushed to the hospital near his west London home with a suspected concussion, facial cuts, and a broken arm after he slammed into the road at 20 mph while not wearing a helmet. (Tsk, tsk!)

The music mogul was later released with rest orders, and has since been seen with a lime green cast up to his shoulder – which was apparently picked out by Simon and Lauren Silverman‘s 7-year-old son, Ericwho also decorated it with drawings of their two dogs, Squiddly spirit Diddly.

This is the second time the tycoon was injured from an e-bike crash: in August 2020, he was left with a broken back after a nasty spill on an e-bike in Malibu. But the source said the 62-year-old will not be giving up e-biking anytime soon, adding:

“Despite this being his second great escape, Simon insists he’s not ditching the bike – but he will start wearing a helmet.”

Good idea!
