September 27, 2005


— R&B; crooner D'Angelo, who won over America with his '90s soul ballads only to fade after bouts with the law and drugs, was critically injured in a car wreck outside his hometown of Richmond.

D'Angelo, 31, born Michael Eugene Archer, was in a 2003 Hummer sport utility vehicle on Sept. 19 when it crossed the roadway and struck a fence, ejecting the singer, State Police Sgt. Kevin Barrick said Monday. Archer wasn't wearing a seat restraint, Barrick said.

Barrick said Archer was initially listed in critical condition, but that no further information is available.

Another person, Lynne Sellers, also was injured in the wreck. Police couldn't say which of the two had been driving.
