According to reports, the reggae artist was involved in a serious accident in St. Thomas on Tuesday morning (August 9). The singer’s manager shared that the “Fireman” artist suffered minor injuries from the accident. The car that Capleton was traveling in was reportedly overturned while on the Llandewey around 5 am. The “That Day Will Come” singer was the driver and was the only occupant of the vehicle.
Capleton’s manager Claudette Kemp confirmed that the artist is at home resting after the ordeal. She did not share more details about the accident.
“The vehicle write-off but he is okay. He is recuperating at home,” Kemp was quoted as saying by the Jamaica Observer news.
A photo shows the artist’s Mercedes Benz black SUV lying on its top with the driver’s side of the door opened.
