Former NBA star Dennis Rodman escaped serious injury after riding in an SUV that flipped over on an interstate in Florida.

The former Celebrity Apprentice contestant, 49, and another passenger were unharmed after the Land Rover they were in crashed on Interstate 95 near Fort Lauderdale after having a tire problem, according to Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Mark Wysocky.

Rodman walked away “with a little scratch on his finger,” his agent, Darren Prince, told the Associated Press. The driver had a gash in his head but was in stable condition, Rodman said.

“I’m still living brother,” Rodman told his agent. “They can’t get rid of me.”
