Guns N' Roses rocker Ron Thal is recovering from injuries sustained in a severe four-car accident.
An Suv (Sports Utility Vehicle) slammed into the guitarist's silver Toyota on Tuesday (31May11) - and the rocker feels lucky to be alive.
The star has taken to his Twitter.com account to post a photo of his mashed up vehicle and alert fans to his scary experience, paying tribute to his car's safety features for helping him escape the crash unscathed.
He wrote, "24 hrs dealing with car rental, insurance & collision folks, lease & bank, police, as the injuries begin to reveal themselves... Thank you Toyota for the functional seat belt, air bags & crumple zone, you saved my skull."
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
Rock legend Eric Clapton has admitted the era of the guitar may be ''over''.
Following his success with 'The Force Awakens', the director will close out the trilogy.
