Famous rapper Macklemore has not been injured, although he was recently involved in a car accident. So, the musician’s fans can rest assured that he is doing well.
The accident occurred on Friday, on Whidbey Island. The star, whose real name is Benjamin Haggerty, is fine and was unharmed in the head-on collision. TMZ reported that the musician’s vehicle was struck by another car at around 11 p.m. Macklemore was driving his Mercedes when the incident occurred. The other vehicle allegedly was to blame for the accident. The car, a 1986 Chevrolet pickup, crossed the center traffic line and slammed into the star’s vehicle.
The driver is said to have told the police that he had a few drinks sometime before the accident. The driver received treatment because of some injuries he suffered at his head, and was transported to the hospital. He was allegedly unconscious following the crash, in which he smashed his head into the windshield. He was not wearing a seat-belt. His blood was also tested for intoxicants and the 24-year-old man was arrested “on suspicion of DUI.”
Macklemore was accompanied by two other people in the car. They were also fine following the accident, although one of the two passengers received treatment for a small cut. None of the passengers in Macklemore’s car required additional care, so they all left the scene of the accident. No further details were available for the moment.
