Country Artist Steve Moakler is speaking out about a car accident earlier this year.
In an interview with The Boot, Moakler recalls the day of the accident.
While heading to a show in North Carolina in April, the country artist was driving in the rain when he came upon a stop sign over a hill. There were tractor trailers in front of the country artist, and he couldn’t stop in time to prevent his vehicle from crashing into one of the tractor trailers.
While his crew was okay, Moakler was trapped inside the van he was driving. A few truckers helped pry the country artist free from the van.
Miraculously, everyone involved in the accident walked away from the scene with minor injuries. For the country artist, the incident was a reminder that he or one of his crew members could have died in that accident.
A little over a month later, Moakler feels grateful that his life didn’t stop that day, and he’s eagerly looking forward to the future.
