Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin hospitalized after 'serious' road accident
Gospel singer and minister Donnie McClurkin took to Facebook to reveal that he was involved in a “serious accident” that left him hospitalized.
In the post, the man explained that the incident took place at 12:50 a.m. on December 12. Unfortunately, he passed out while driving on the highway, which was the principal cause of the crash.
Even though the accident “totaled the car” and got him in a hospital, Donnie was thankful because he was alive. Apart from that, he thanked two “angels” who helped him when the crash happened.
“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 [sic],” wrote the singer.
Donnie added that all he could remember was that the “angels,” whose name were not revealed, pulled him out of the passenger’s seat of his “crumbled, totaled car.” He described how the airbags were "deployed," and the metal and fiberglass were "crushed."
“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…I am still here by the grace of God! Thank you, Lord…thank you! [sic]” concluded Donnie.
So far, the singer has not revealed the result of the tests or why he passed out while driving. What’s certain about him is that he left the hospital already and is expected to fly to Nairobi, Kenya, for a worship event on December 15.
“I know God has a purpose for me on this trip and is going to do a powerful thing in Nairobi. I am truly thankful for all those in Nairobi who are praying for me and my message to them is – come let us rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice for we have the victory. See you on Saturday,” Donnie revealed.
The man has won three Grammy Awards, then Stellar Awards, two BET Awards, and some other accolades. Since he is one of the top selling Gospel music artists, Variety labeled him as the “Reigning King of Urban Gospel.”
