McClurkin reportedly passed out while driving and was involved in a serious crash, in which he suffered a few minor injuries. He shared the experience on social media.
“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…..,” McClurkin, who is the pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, New York, announced in a statement on Facebook.
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 passenger’s side of the crumbled TOTALED car…airbags deployed…crushed metal and Fiberglas!! [Sic]” he continued.
McClurkin suffered a sprained wrist, knee injury and had to receive stitches on his thumb.
“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!” he ended the statement in which he repeatedly declared himself “alive.”
On Thursday he wrote on Twitter: “A day and a half ago, I was in an accident that almost took my life….today I’m in Kenya ..Sunday I’ll be in PFC ..praising God for His miraculous power of life over death !!!! Thank you, EVERYONE for praying for me…THANK YOU!!! The prayers of the righteous!”
And on Facebook he issued the following statement:
“Things happen in life that we can’t always explain. I’m sure many of you have already heard about my recent car accident. I was leaving a rehearsal at church and somehow lost consciousness while driving home. I actually don’t recall much of anything, but being removed from the car by two God-sent individuals, who trailed behind my car with their emergency lights blinking. Because of their immediate reaction, no one else was hurt, and I’m truly grateful for that. I’m dealing with a few bumps and bruises, but I have been released from the hospital and doing fine. Praise God! Thank you for your concern and prayers. I love and appreciate you all!”
