Johannesburg - Well-known Afrikaans singer Kurt Darren is in a serious but stable condition in the Netcare Milpark Hospital after he was involved in a car crash early on Sunday morning.

Huisgenoot reported that initially it had been feared that the singer had broken his neck.

However, indications were that just eight of his ribs had been broken.

In a statement released by Louis van Wyk, from Music Profile Management, the singer’s condition is described as “stable” even though he is currently in ICU and seems to be experiencing “extreme pain and discomfort".

Darren was airlifted from the scene of the accident at Kameelfontein, Pretoria.

According to the statement the singer was on his way home after watching a rugby game with his friends when the accident took place.

Two other people were with Darren in the car at the time of the accident.
