Celebrities at the Mandela Walk to Freedom Premiere

Idris Elba is counting his blessings this Christmas after walking away from a nasty car wreck unscathed.

According to The Sun, the Mandela actor flipped his car while shooting a racing documentary, Idris Elba: King of Speed, in Finland. The actor sped over an embankment and overturned his vehicle, fortunately he was not hurt.

“I never want to do that again,” he told The Sun. “It’s the first time that I have ever rolled a car. I wasn’t going fast, the car just had a mind of its own when it hit the band. I cut the corner and then we rolled.”

Despite the accident, Idris continued shooting.

We’re glad to hear he’s doing well! The two-part documentary hits theaters in the UK December 26 and 27.
