R&B crooner Donell Jones took to social media Tuesday morning to reveal that he recently drove into a ditch after falling asleep at the wheel, warning followers to rest before ever hitting the road.
“I fell asleep while driving yesterday and ended up in a ditch,” the “Where I Wanna Be” artist, 49, shared on Instagram, captioning a photo of his car still stuck in the trench.
“I walk away with no injuries but I learned a valuable lesson, That if you’re tired just park the car cause this could’ve been bad,” he continued. “I know that I am truly protected but I needed this experience…. Thank you God for wrapping your arms around me as you have always done… My love and loyalty is to you.. ????.”
The artist was met with several messages of support and gratitude for his safety.
“I’m glad you’re ok!!!??❤️,” wrote Coko of SWV, with Fat Joe adding, “My brother hope you ok ??❤️.”
Tweet from R&B group Next offered, “Your karma and good energy will always protect you my brother. Blessings always ???.”
