PATERSON - "Trap Queen" rapper Fetty Wap has received three summonses after he was injured in a motorcycle crash in his northern New Jersey hometown.

Paterson Police Director Jerry Speziale says the 25-year-old Wap was cited for driving without a license, not having insurance and failing to produce a vehicle registration card.

Wap was hospitalized after police say his motorcycle collided with a car Saturday afternoon. Police said his injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, has had three Top-10 songs in the last year and released his debut album "Fetty Wap" on Friday.

A message seeking comment from a representative for Wap was not immediately returned Sunday afternoon. It wasn't immediately clear if Wap had an attorney.

The woman driving the car also was hurt.
