Simon Cowell “lucky to be alive” after crashing his e-bike on busy London road

Pop guru Simon Cowell is “luck to be alive” after crashing his e-bike.

The music mogul was thrown over the handlebars while doing more than 20 mph.

He was not wearing a helmet.

Cowell, 62, was taken to a hospital near his west London home.


He had suspected concussion, facial cuts and bruises, and a broken arm.

It’s the second time in 18-months he has come off an e-bike.

In August 2020 he suffered a broken back in a crash at Malibu, in California.

The Sun newspaper reported Cowell’s latest scrape with death was seen by passers-by.

Some attended him as he lay in the road while three other people stopped oncoming traffic.

An ambulance was called, and Cowell was treated by three paramedics before being taken to hospital.

A source told The Sun:

“Simon is lucky to be alive.

“He was pedalling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch.

“He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road.”

The source added that blood was gushing from his face, likening him to something from the Phantom of the Opera.

Three onlookers stopped oncoming  traffic .

Cowell was released from hospital after an X-ray.

He has been seen sporting a lime green plaster cast on his left arm.
