And he was indeed lucky.
The matte black Mercedes G Wagon he was riding in was totally mangled and had been thrown off the road on impact.
All the airbags appeared to have deployed if the photos plastered on social media were anything to go by.
Netizens however, appeared more concerned about the amount it would take to repair or replace the high-end SUV.
Importing a 2012 G Wagon to Kenya will set your bank account a cool Ksh. 20 million back or more.
Its repairs, depending on what is being replaced would also possibly run into the millions.
Locally, the same model is driven by among a handful others, lawyer Ahmednasir, President Uhuru and news anchor Jeff Koinange.
In the west, the G wagon is a statement of opulance for flashy Hollywood celebrities; the likes of Jeffrey Star, Drake, Tory Lanez and Offset.
