MIAMI (KTLA) -- Pop singer Sean Kingston's condition has stabilized is described as "awake and alert" less than one week after crashing into a bridge while riding a watercraft, sources said Saturday.

TMZ reported Saturday that sources said he has a breathing tube in his mouth and is communicating through nods and sign language.

The crash happened around 6 p.m. local time on May 29 when Kingston drove his jet ski into a bridge connecting Palm Island to the MacArthur Causeway.

Kingston and a female passenger were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

He reportedly broke his jaw, fractured his wrist and had water in his lungs.

The female passenger, Cassandra Sanchez, told TMZ on Tuesday that Kingston was speeding before they approached the bridge. She also begged him to stop, realizing they wouldn't fit under the structure.

The 21-year-old Miami-born singer gained fame in 2007 with his single "Beautiful Girls."

Palm Island is a private residential neighborhood in Miami Beach only accessible by bridge.

Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor in the crash, according to a report released by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
