Macklemore Uninjured After Head-On Collision with Alleged Drunk Driver: Report

Macklemore managed to escape injury Friday night after a scary head-on collision with an alleged drunk driver.

TMZ reports that the “Same Love” rapper, 34, was driving in Langley, Washington—an island north of his hometown of Seattle—just after 11 p.m. when a pickup truck turning the corner crossed into oncoming traffic and slammed into the front of Macklemore’s Mercedes-Benz.

Police tell the outlet that the driver of the pickup truck was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the incident, and the force of the crash caused his head to strike the windshield. He was reportedly bleeding and unconscious at the scene. After being revived, he told officers that he had been drinking alcohol “awhile back” at “5 o’clock.” He received treatment at a local hospital and will reportedly be charged with a DUI.

One of Macklemore’s two passengers was treated for a small cut, otherwise all occupants of his vehicle were safe and walked away from the scene.

Representatives for Macklemore, who just released his second solo single, “Marmalade,”  did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.
