Just days after dropping the second single off his forthcoming album, rapper Macklemore has been involved in a head-on collision with a suspected drunk driver in Washington state.

According to TMZ, the rapper and his two passengers walked away relatively unharmed. The alleged drunk driver was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt when his pickup truck struck the Seattle rapper's Mercedes. The driver was knocked unconscious after smashing his head into the car window. Police charged the driver with a DUI after taking him to the hospital. Macklemore had two passengers in the car. One was treated for a minor cut.

Meanwhile, Macklemore just released his latest single, "Marmalade" featuring Lil Yachty, last week. The track is the second single off Macklemore's latest, yet-to-be named or given a release date album. It'll be his first release without DJ/producer Ryan Lewis in nearly a decade.
