Singer suffering from whiplash

The X Factor 2009 finalist Lloyd Daniels was involved in a car accident last Friday.

The singer was knocked unconscious when his Mini collided with another vehicle.

Lloyd, 17, was treated for whiplash and bruising at St George’s Hospital in Tooting, south London.

‘We just thank God that it was not much worse,’ mum Lisa tells The Sun.

‘He is a really careful driver. He has only just passed his test so he wants to look after his licence and not get any points on it.

‘He’s still recovering. He’s got quite bad whiplash, his chest is all bruised and he was in shock. He was really upset.’

Lloyd has reassured his fans on Twitter that he is feeling a lot better now.

‘Thanks for the support guys,’ he wrote. ‘I don’t know how you found out but I didn’t want to worry you all myself because I knew you’d panic.’
