Ozzy seriously hurt in ATV crash.
Ozzy Osbourne “broke his collarbone, six ribs and a neck vertebra and suffered bleeding into his lungs” because of an ATV accident, and was in surgery last night. A statement from his spokesperson said that “Ozzy is undergoing emergency surgery to lift the collarbone which is believed to be resting on a major artery interrupting blood flow to his arm. Surgeons are also working to alleviate some bleeding into his lungs. These injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.” His doctor said he’s now “stable and comfortable,” according to MSNBC. The accident took place on his Buckinghamshire property in the UK, and comes shortly after he admitted being high on pills during season two of The Osbournes.
