Beautiful Girls singer Sean Kingston has been taken to hospital after crashing his personal boat into a Miami Beach bridge.

The Miami Herald reports that the accident took place Sunday evening as the 21-year-old was operating a boat with a woman on board. His condition is unclear.

A representative for his label Epic Records confirmed that Sean was in a crash and "was now stabilised". No further information was provided.

Kingston rose to fame with his 2007 hit Beautiful Girls and was also featured on songs by artists including Justin Bieber.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino said Kingston and his passenger were injured when the craft hit the Palm Island Bridge at about 6pm. He said both were taken to Ryder Trauma Centre.

Mr Pino said authorities are investigating the crash and "nothing at this point would indicate that alcohol played a role".
