According to TMZ, Jackson was riding his bike on wet pavement when he lost control of the bike. He wiped out and was injured badly enough to require an ambulance to transport him to the hospital. While inside the ambulance, he posted a photo on Instagram of his feet riding on a gurney.
Jackson did not break any bones and was able to travel to classes not long after the accident.
