Ozzy Osbourne seriously injured in accident

LONDON, England (CNN) --Ozzy Osbourne has been seriously injured in an accident while riding an all-terrain vehicle on the grounds of his British estate, a publicist for the heavy metal legend said.

Cindy Guagenti said Osbourne underwent emergency surgery after breaking his collarbone, several ribs and a vertebra in his neck Monday.

On Tuesday, Osbourne was "stable and comfortable" at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough, west of London, hospital medical director Dr. Dick Jack said.

"When he was admitted, he had a fractured left collarbone ... with some damage to the blood vessel that lies underneath it," Jack said in a statement.

"He had eight fractured ribs on the left, and in addition to that, he has a small ... entirely stable fracture of ... one of the vertebrae in his neck. This is not a major problem.

"The emergency anesthetic and surgical team repaired the blood vessel and re-established the blood supply to the left hand and arm. The left collarbone was then reconstructed and he was taken to the intensive care unit where he spent the night comfortably. He's resting.

"This morning he will be seen by the doctors who are taking care of him. They will reassess him and make decisions as to what his treatment should be next."

Guagenti earlier said the surgery was necessary to "lift the collarbone, which is believed to be resting on a major artery interrupting blood flow to his arm."

Guagenti also said earlier that doctors were attempting to stop "some bleeding into his lungs," but she said the injuries were not considered life-threatening.

The accident took place on the 55-year-old rocker's Buckinghamshire property north of London while he was taking a day off from promoting a new single he recorded with his daughter, Kelly.

Osbourne and his family star in a taped Christmas special airing on MTV Thursday.

The third season of their reality TV series "The Osbournes" debuts on the network in January.

In an article in Sunday's Los Angeles Times, the former lead singer of Black Sabbath said his unusual behavior on "The Osbournes" was the result of a 42-pill-a-day regimen prescribed by his Beverly Hills doctor, which included anti-psychotic drugs and tranquilizers.

Osbourne said he has since fired his physician.

An attorney for the doctor told the Times the allegations were false.

Osbourne's publicist said pills had nothing to do with his accident Monday.

Osbourne made headlines in his native Britain last month when he told a newspaper he had been sexually molested as a child and suffered emotional consequences for many years afterward.

I guarantee Sharon immediately started calling her people to make some moves to make money in case Ozzy died before she thought about him as a husband in a hospital. He's her meal ticket, and she's a huge bitch.

I bet Sharon "administered" his meds and encouraged him to get after it on the ATV.

I'm sure he can't feel anything. He is still numb from all the drugs in his system. It will be at least 20 tears before he feels anything.

Ever vigilant, the Grammar-stapo springs into action to point out an egregious error in [b]Johnny_Reno[/b]'s post. The correct structure should be:
