Singer/songwriter Jackson Browne's son Ethan has broken a vertebrae after flipping his car three times in a horror crash.
The Take It Easy hitmaker's actor/model son was heading to an Independence Day (04Jul11) party in Los Angeles when he swerved to avoid a cat in the road.
His Mercedes car careered out of control and flipped over three times, leaving Ethan suffering from an agonising broken bone in his back.
The 37 year old is currently recovering in hospital and is not expected to be released from medics' care for several weeks, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
Last year (10), Browne and Ethan teamed up to launch a new record label, Spinside, as a subsidiary of the Late for the Sky singer's Inside Recording.
