LANGLEY, Wash. – A suspected drunk driver crashed head-on into Macklemore’s vehicle Friday night, but the Seattle rapper wasn’t badly hurt, authorities said.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the driver of a pickup truck slammed into Macklemore’s Mercedes around 11 p.m. on Washington state’s Whidbey Island.

Troopers said the driver was coming around a bend when he crossed the centerline and struck Macklemore’s car.

The singer and his two passengers were able to walk away from the incident — one of them suffered a cut to the head.

Troopers told TMZ the driver of the pickup was not wearing a seat belt. He was taken to the hospital for treatment before being transferred to jail.

Charges will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office.
