Grammy-winning R&B vocalist D'Angelo was hospitalized in Virginia after his Hummer crashed into a fence and overturned, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

The 31-year-old "Brown Sugar" singer (real name: Michael Eugene Archer) – a native of Richmond and a resident of Midlothian, Va. – reportedly was not wearing his seatbelt on Sept. 19 when his vehicle ran off the road, hit a fence and flipped over, throwing him from the Hummer. It's not known whether he was driving.

On Monday the singer's lawyer, L. Londell McMillan, issued a statement saying the singer is doing fine. "D'Angelo is home and doing well. He is anxious to finish the recording of his soul masterpiece that the world has patiently awaited. His spirit is very positive and he is blessed that the accident was not fatal."

Another occupant of the vehicle, Lynne Sellers, also was hurt, the paper reports. She and D'Angelo were taken to Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, according to police, who are continuing to investigate the accident.

Earlier this month. D'Angelo received a suspended prison sentence after pleading no contest to felony cocaine possession. He was sentenced to three years in prison with all three years suspended, and he was asked to pay court costs.
