The accident happened today and was, according to the 36-year-old artist, his first one ever. “I just survived a car accident on the Van Wyck in Queens, N.Y. I Wanna Thank God for not only letting me walk away with a few bumps & bruises but also for letting my driver Ruben & the two truck drivers involved walk away alive also. This was my 1st time being in a car accident,” Fabolous wrote on his Instagram Account.

Looking at the image, it seems like the full-size luxury SUV didn’t receive too much damage, even though the truck looks a bit shattered. Considering we are are dealing with a 6.2-litter V8 engine that produces 403 horsepower, the vehicle is not as unwieldy as you’d think.

As a matter of fact, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 2007-08 Escalade models had the highest fatality rate of their class with a driver death rate of 33 compared to the class average of 15.
