Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin was hospitalized following a car accident Wednesday after he passed out at the wheel. He shared the experience via social media.

“Was in a serious accident at 12:50am this morning…passed out while driving on the highway,” McClurkin wrote. “Totaled the car…hospitalized, going through a myriad of tests…..But I’m alive!!!

He added that two good Samaritans he’s dubbed “human angels” followed behind his vehicle once they realized he was swerving on the road. They also helped him out of his wrecked vehicle after it hit a concrete island.

“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! God and two angels saved my life! I owe them…I am still here by the grace of God! Thank you, Lord…thank you!”
