Usher's Stepson

Investigation Into Accident Underway

The Department of Natural Resource in Atlanta is investigating the accident that left Kyle Glover, stepson of R&B star Usher in critical condition ... an investigation which could take months to complete.

As TMZ first reported, the 11-year-old was struck in the head by a jet ski while riding in an inner tube on Lake Lanier. He was rushed to a nearby hospital and remains there in critical condition.

Robin Hill, a rep for the Department of Natural Resources (Wildlife Resources Division), tells TMZ the department's Critical Incident Response Team will recreate the accident on the lake to help determine what happened. Using special computer programs, they will attempt to figure out how fast the boats were going at the time of the accident.

Hill says that rangers have been in touch with the driver of the jet ski and remain in contact with him. Once the department completes their investigation, they will turn their recommendation over to the district attorney who would then decide whether or not to file charges.

And STILL no mention that another kid was also badly hurt, or that the jetski was someone in their own party? How can you not mention the other child, TMZ? That's just very wrong

Prayers to Usher and his family. If another child was also injured, they need to be included in these stories.

sadly, sometimes it takes a tragedy for people to focus on what really matters in life. hopefully his mother and step father can use this as a wake up call, put their differences aside and start to act like adults. stop fighting over petty issues and be grateful!!!

We see this here a lot. I'm a big fan of using common sense when riding watercraft but there seems to be a shortage these days. Throw booze on top and it can be a real disaster. So sorry for these kids.

praying for the two children....jet skis should not be in the water with people swimming...i cant even imagine how the parents feel.

I really hope he makes a full recovery with no lasting issues afterwards. Him and the girl who was ALSO hit.

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH USHER. IT'S HIS EX-WIFE'S PROBLEM.

There is a kid on an inner tube in the lake. Who doesn't SEE that ! Who is so reckless not to see human objects in their way !!!!! This is so, so sad.

There should be an IQ test before people are allowed to drive jetskis... OR tow people behind them.

I'm curious who those rich white folks are with the jet skis that the Department of Natural Resource in Atlanta is going through all these changes to try to find an out for them. THEY HIT THE KID, HE'S IN THE HOSPITAL, CRITICAL CONDITION. WHAT THE HELL DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKES HOW FAST S/HE WAS GOING?
