Singer Samantha Mumba was involving in a massive automobile accident earlier this week.
Hollywood Life reports that the 31-year-old singer is lucky to be alive after the three-car pileup on February 9, which occurred in Los Angeles.
With one week remaining until her due date, the 9-months pregnant singer and actress is undoubtedly happy that both her and her unborn child are fine even though her car was totaled in the crash.
On the day after the accident, Samantha Mumba posted a picture to her official Instagram account of herself lying on a stretcher.
In the caption of the picture, Samantha opened up about accident.
“So yesterday was a bad day. 3 car crash that we got the brunt of. My poor car written off a week before the baby is due. Clearly God was protecting us….just so grateful that our little girl is ok and this wasn’t any worse. Serious reality check.”
Throughout the duration of her pregnancy up to this point, Samantha Mumba has continuously updated her fans and followers to keep them in the loop.
So glad to hear Samantha Mumba is okay after a scary car accident one week before her due date! http://t.co/HuJrU5CITz

She has even showed off her baby bump in numerous Instagram pictures as well as her husband, Torray Scales.
Samantha Mumba is currently expecting the couple’s first child together. Torray also has a son, Mason, from a previous relationship. Scales and Mumba got married back in 2013 in Los Angeles.
Samantha broke the news about her pregnancy last September by posting a sonogram picture of her unborn child on Instagram.
The 32-year-old Irish singer first grabbed the music spotlight back in 2000 with the release of her hit debut single, “Gotta Tell You.”
Reports confirm that the song was a Top 10 hit in three countries – the United States, United Kingdom and Ireland.
Even though her success in the music business was relatively short, Mumba shifted towards the movie screen – starring in such films as The Time Machine starring Guy Pearce and Loftus Hall.
She reportedly retired from the music industry back in 2011, but was able to reignite her interest in music in 2013 by performing a number of gigs in Ireland.
Perhaps Samantha Mumba will find a new sense of inspiration to return to the recording studio and create new music after giving birth to her daughter in the near future.
