Cassandra Sanchez, a passenger on Sean Kingston‘s jet ski when he collided with a bridge in Miami Beach this weekend, tells TMZ that she warned the singer he was driving too fast, yelling at him to stop. “Both jet skis pulled out of the dock at the same time and we were going so fast we just blasted past them. When we turned a corner and crashed…they were so far behind us they didn’t even see us crash.” Sanchez said she believes he tried to turn away from the bridge, but failed. After the crash, Kingston was “coughing up blood, foam and pink stuff” as friends tried to help them, with the singer finally saying “I’m hurting, I’m hurting” when he was able to speak. A Coast Guard rescuer also says Kingston told him “I’m going to be OK.” Authorities do not believe alcohol played a part in the crash.
Sanchez, who only received minor rib injuries, said Kingston, currently in critical but stable condition, “can’t really talk” due to a tube in his throat, “but he is lucid and understands what’s going on.” Kingston’s rep had no update this morning, but said his family was grateful for everyone’s prayers and support.
