Keith Urban Walks Away From Motorcycle Crash

A paparazzo chasing him comes to his aid after the accident.

Keith Urban survived a motorcycle accident in Sydney, Australia, Oct. 1 and walked away uninjured after being pursued by paparazzi. Keith is an experienced rider and was given a Harley-Davidson by his buddy Kenny Chesney several years ago on the last night of a tour Keith had opened for Kenny. On the morning of the close call, Keith released the following statement about the accident:

"Today's incident was the result of one person's desire to do his job and my desire to maintain my privacy. Some have already attempted to inflate the facts, but the reality is this: while out riding to an AA meeting, a time when my privacy is especially important to me, I felt myself being pursued. I sped up, and in an effort to elude an oncoming car which was making an illegal U-turn, saw no choice but to drop my bike. In actual fact, my pursuer came to my assistance, without taking photos, and helped me from the road. I returned home, got my car, and continued on my way."
