Donnie McClurkin is known for his beloved gospel music and being a minister, but today he’s praising God like never before because he managed to survive a car wreck that completely destroyed his vehicle.
From the hospital, the 59-year-old “We Fall Down” singer shared that he passed out while driving, but was kept from unavoidable harm by two people he called “human angels.”
“Was in a serious accident at 12:50 am this morning…passed out while driving on the highway. Totaled the car…hospitalized, going through a myriad of tests…..But I’m alive!” he wrote.
“Lost consciousness driving…but two human angels followed my swerving car with their emergency blinkers onto [sic] stop traffic ….drove behind me until my car crashed into the middle concrete island,” he continued. “I remember none of it except those two angels pulling me out of the passengers side of the crumbled TOTALED car..airbags deployed…crushed metal and Fiberglas [sic]!! 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! I owe them…” he added. “I am still here by the grace of God! Thank you, Lord…thank you!”
As McClurkin said, he’s still undergoing tests, so for now, it’s unclear what was behind him initially losing consciousness behind the wheel. Scary situation, but it could have ended a lot worse.
This isn’t the first time that McClurkin has found himself in a scary position in terms of his health. He had a scare in 2014 because of his diabetes, and opened up this year about having to have precancerous tissue removed from his vocal chords and tests done on it. But he wanted to clarify for those spreading rumors at the time that that didn’t mean he has cancer.
“I want to take away the drama. It is not throat cancer. They want to make sure that it’s not. It is precancerous scar tissue, the beginning stages,” he said. “They want to ensure that it’s not cancerous, so we’re going to do tests. So, keep me in your prayers.”
