Country singer Joel Crouse is counting his lucky stars after he managed to walk away from a major car accident on Friday night.

The 21 year old took to Instagram.com on Saturday to break the news to fans, posting photos of a car turned over on its roof, as well as a snap of himself laying in a gurney with a neck brace.

Thankfully, Crouse escaped with no major injuries, and assured his followers he was on the mend.

He wrote, “Well… Last night a miracle happened. I walked away from my car without a scratch on me. A little banged up but I have no doubt in my mind that God saved my life last night. I am incredibly thankful and grateful for my health. Also thank you for the prayers.”

Crouse, who is reportedly dating Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, also apologized to the actress/singer for not being able to travel to Las Vegas with her over the weekend to attend the Billboard Music Awards, where she served as a presenter on Sunday.
