Flavor Flav is lucky to be alive after a boulder tumbled down a cliff and hit the side of his car while he was driving.
TMZ reports that the rap icon was in La Tuna Canyon during a drive from Las Vegas to Los Angeles when heavy rains caused a boulder to fall off the cliff. The rock smashed into the front passenger side of his Audi, causing him to briefly lose control of the car.
Pictures posted to the webloid showed extensive damage to the car, and it's very feasible that Flav was merely inches from death.
"God is good," a shaken, but physical safe Flav told TMZ afterward. He added that he "came very close to death but [he is] super grateful to be alive."
A rep for the rapper told Page Six, "Thank God he survived and is OK, although [he's] a bit emotionally shaken up."
The incident was viewed by another driver, who was rattled after seeing the near-death experience.
With his car all but destroyed, Flav's team called AAA, which towed the car away.
