Snow Patrol singer injured in go-kart accident

Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody has been injured in a go-karting accident in Germany. According to the Daily Record the singer suffered a broken rib.

Lightbody spoke to the Record about the incident: "I had my very best idiot trousers on in Germany at the street gig and we did a go-kart track in Dettenheim."

"I did say beforehand that I shouldn't be in charge of anything that can go over 20 miles per hour, and secondly I am the most accident-prone idiot in the Western world."

The Irish singer continued: "Did I heed my own advice? No! Crash after crash I finished on a particularly nasty one that put me in hospital where I discovered I had a broken rib."

Lightbody is currently resting following the accident.
