Post Malone involved in serious car crash weeks after his plane made an emergency landing
While Post Malone found worldwide recognition with the release of his second album in 2018, this year has also seen the rapper contend with an awful lot of bad luck.
Just weeks after a private plane he was travelling on was forced to make an emergency landing, the 23-year-old has cheated death once again, after he was involved in a high-speed car crash this morning.
Malone, who is also known as Austin Post, was in a Rolls Royce with his assistant early on Friday morning when the crash occurred. His assistant was driving through West Hollywood when the vehicle crashed into a Kia.
According to Sergeant Andrew Meyers of the Beverly Hills Police Department, Malone's car proceeded to smash through a fence before coming to a stop in an area of shrubbery.
The rapper and his assistant sustained no injuries in the crash, however, the vehicle in question was badly damaged and was pictured being towed away from the scene.
The Beverly Hills Police Department have since confirmed that there were no other injuries reported, and that no alcohol was involved.
The Better Now singer was photographed looking shaken after the incident, holding a cigarette while talking to a police officer. However, he was also seen clambering onto the roof of his wrecked white Rolls Royce before the vehicle was taken away.
The hip-hop star took to Twitter after the crash, writing "god must hate me lol."
Two weeks ago, Malone allegedly feared the worst after the tyres of his private jet exploded shortly after take-off.
The plane departed from Teterboro airport after the MTV Video Music Awards, and there were 16 people on board. The jet was diverted to New York, where it was forced to circle the airport for several hours to burn off fuel.
The plane landed safely at Stewart International Airport.
Malone was naturally shaken by the incident. "I landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website. f*ck you. but not today," he later wrote on Twitter.
