The music superstar, best known as Macklemore, was recently involved in a head-on collision with an alleged drunk driver. The incident took place in Macklemore’s home state of Washington.

The wreck occurred at about 10:45 pm in Langley, Washington. A pickup truck driver crossed the center line and crashed directly into Macklemore. The "Thrift Shop" singer was not at fault.

"He was in Langley, Washington -- which is a tiny town two hours north of Seattle -- and driving his 2016 Mercedes when a 1986 Chevy pickup driven by a 24-year-old old crossed the center line and hit Macklemore head-on," a spokesperson for the Washington State Police told Entertainment Tonight.

The driver of the pickup was arrested on suspicion of DUI and transported to a local hospital. Thankfully, Macklemore was not injured in the collision. The singer also recently became a father last year.

"The 24-year-old was injured, but not seriously," police say. "He was injured enough that he had to be transported to the hospital and he was arrested on suspicion of DUI."
