Canadian Singer Burton Cummings Injured In Car Crash
Canadian music icon Burton Cummings is recovering from minor injuries he suffered in a car accident on Sunday.
The 70-year-old Guess Who co-founder said his car was totalled after it was hit “by a guy who ran right through a red light.
"I suffered a concussion as my head cracked my front windshield. I have cuts and serious bruising on both arms, and my left leg is very painful,” Cummings shared in a Facebook post. “Also, intense back pain. I need some serious healing time.”
The “American Woman” singer said he is grateful that he was not “killed or crippled” in the collision.
“My hands and throat are basically okay, although I would be in no condition to do a show right now. No glass hit my eyes, but the concussion was quite serious,” said Cummings. “My head is quite swollen, as is my left elbow…both arms have many cuts and bruises…”
Cummings added that he was unconscious for a few seconds following impact.
“After this accident, I know I'm going to have to get some help getting over the shock…that's the worst part right now…trying to keep telling myself that I'm okay…my mind keeps reliving the awful crash…the terror and the sound.”
