Donnie McClurkin landed in the hospital Wednesday after getting in a car accident caused after he says he passed out at the wheel. But the gospel singer is giving thanks to “two angels” who he credits with saving his life.
Taking to his Facebook page the evening of Dec. 12 to share details of his collision with fans, the minister explained the accident happened in the early hours of Wednesday morning and he was thankful to be alive.
“Was in a serious accident at 12:50am 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 stop traffic ….drove behind me until my car crashed into the middle concrete island. 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!!
“I AM ALIVE!!!! Somewhat mangled, stitches on left thumb, sprained wrist, hurt knee, but I’m still here!” the “Yes You Can” singer concluded. “God and two angels saved my life! I owe them…I am still here by the grace of God! Thank you, Lord…thank you!”
McClurkin did not disclose what caused him to apparently lose consciousness but fans have been pleading with the star to take better care of himself.
“My brother, As we get older we must take more precautions; you must become better stewards with what God gave you, ‘Yourself.’ In those late, tired outings, have someone drive you. I’m sure there are many that will be more than willing. Praying for your complete recovery….”
“You’re not getting enough rest. Slow down God is with you and you will reach all that you’re called to reach so don’t rush! Hear the words of the Lord.”
“Donnie McClurkin, my Brotha, gots to be more careful! … You know I’m going to ask: Where’s your Driver? Your people man? You are precious cargo. So glad GOD said: NOT SO!! GLORY to His Name!! Live on & Live Well! Prayers of Healing ascending on your behalf….🙏🏾 We Love you to LIFE!! 💖😘🤗”
