Flavor Flav has avoided a potentially fatal accident after he swerved off the road yesterday (December 14) after a boulder crashed into his car.

As TMZ report, the Public Enemy rapper was driving from Las Vegas to Los Angeles when a boulder from the La Tuna Canyon fell onto the road after significant rainfall.

The report adds that the incident totalled Flav’s car, and caused him to swerve off the road. Representatives for the rapper told TMZ that the incident may have been fatal if the boulder had fallen just a few feet closer to him.

Elsewhere, Flavor Flav has reportedly had his domestic battery charges dropped, following his arrest back in October.

He was arrested in Nevada and subsequently charged with misdemeanour battery constituting domestic violence almost two months ago. A criminal complaint alleged that Flav “poked his finger on the alleged victim’s nose, grabbed her, threw her down and grabbed a phone out her hand”.

According to TMZ, Flav – real name William Jonathan Drayton Jr. – pleaded no contest to one count of coercion. He was also reportedly fined $640, but will not serve any jail time.

In a statement, Flav’s legal team said, “Today the domestic violence charge against Mr. William Dayton (Flav) was dismissed.
