Simon Cowell is reportedly ‘lucky to be alive’ following another terrifying e-bike crash.

Sources told The Sun that the 62-year-old music mogul was rushed to hospital last Thursday after launching over the handlebars and onto the road at 20mph. 

It has been said that the ‘blood-soaked’ tycoon was not wearing a helmet and was attended to by passers-by before paramedics arrived.

He obtained a suspected concussion and a broken arm, which comes just 18 months after he broke his back on an e-bike in Malibu. 

The source told the publication: ‘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.

It has been claimed that three onlookers stopped the traffic so he wouldn’t get run over.

After being ambulanced to hospital, the father-of-one was X-rayed and eventually released with rest orders – and has been pictured with a lime green cast up to his shoulder.

Simon’s seven-year-old son Eric, who he shares with fiancée Lauren Silverman, reportedly chose his dad’s cast and has drawn their two dogs, Squiddly and Diddly. 

‘Despite this being his second great escape, Simon insists he’s not ditching the bike – but he will start wearing a helmet,’ the source concluded. 

MailOnline has reached out to Simon’s representatives for comment.   

Last November, the TV personality admitted he wouldn’t erase the accident that broke his back.

In August 2020, Simon fell off his e-bike in Malibu and had to undergo back surgery.

However, the ordeal only encouraged him to exercise even more, and, despite downgrading his bike to something a little more sedate, he told his ex girlfriend Terri Seymour on ExtraTV he still does ‘ten miles a day.’

‘My most creative time is now when I cycle, because I cycle even though it’s an e-bike. I still got to pedal and I do about ten miles a day… even though I had an accident on one.  

‘That was more an electric motorbike – these are called pedal-assist bikes and they’re brilliant,’ he explained. 

Simon was adamant he wasn’t nervous about getting back on a bike, even though he was only ‘a millimetre’ away from being paralysed.  

‘That expression “get back on your bike,” with me, it was literal. I feel better than I did because I exercise so much more.

‘Honestly, if I could rewind, I would have gone through the whole thing again. Just because I feel better now. Yeah, even though it hurt like hell at the time,’ he admitted.
