Gospel legend Donnie McClurkin couldn’t be more grateful after surviving a car accident this past Wednesday (Dec. 12).
The “We Fall Down” singer was driving on the road in the earlier part of the day when he passed out and began weaving into traffic. He reportedly struck the middle concrete island.
Following the incident, he posted a selfie of him on the hospital bed in scrubs on Facebook. Along with the photo, he explained that he woke up from the accident with stitches on his left thumb, on top of having a sprained wrist, and hurt knee. His car was also completely totaled.
“I AM ALIVE!!!! Somewhat mangled, stitches on left thumb, sprained wrist, hurt knee, but I’m still here! God and two angels saved my life!,” the Grammy-winning artist wrote.
He also mentioned that two “angels” pulled him out the car to safety and medical attention. “I owe them…I am still here by the grace of God! Thank you, Lord…thank you!” he added.
On Friday (Dec. 14), McClurkin posted to his Facebook page again, sharing several photos of his destroyed car. “This is the totaled car that two angels rescued me from ….after passing out while driving I don’t remember most of what happened a day and a half ago…but God,” he wrote. “I overrode doctors and sisters advice and flew to KENYA today for ministry Saturday @ TWO RIVERS. and home on this Sunday to celebrate life.”
In happier news, McClurkin also took time to plug in his new Christmas single titled “My Favorite Things.” Check out McClurkin’s posts on social media and stream his new song below.
