Jürgen Drews seems to have a guardian angel: on the way to a concert, the hit star was crashed by another car in his car at the beginning of his career. Although he was bleeding “like a pig” from the accident, the 77-year-old escaped worse.

Darmstadt – In the course of his career, Jürgen Drews (77) has experienced a lot – both positive and negative: In the 1970s, when the pop star was still at the very beginning of his career, the interpreter of “Ein Bett im Kornfeld” narrowly escaped a catastrophe. Another driver had disobeyed the right of way rules and put the 77-year-old’s life in danger!

In Darmstadt, the young Jürgen Drews was once on his way to a concert in his red VW Beetle convertible when suddenly there was a crash: another car had given the hit star the right of way and collided head-on with his car.

“She [die Fahrerin; Anm.d.Red] it’s right in front of me, from the side, it’s just over the traffic light. I couldn’t see anything anymore because the whole bonnet had lifted up. I myself hit the left side of the window with the left side of my head, bled like a pig, but luckily I didn’t faint. I haven’t had a concussion or fractured the base of my skull.”Jürgen Drews remembers the frontal crash in the new “Des König’s new podcast” edition.

Although Jürgen Drews got off relatively lightly, the hit star had to be taken to the hospital because of a gaping wound on his head. His injury was finally sewn up without anesthesia – but the 77-year-old felt nothing: “You are still in shock and you don’t feel any pain when you are in shock. I did not notice anything.”

It is very fortunate that the “King of Mallorca” did not suffer any permanent damage. His career really took off a little later – however, his wife Ramona (48) initially objected to Jürgen Drews’ famous nickname, as the musician recently revealed. Sources used: The king’s new podcast
