After surviving a near-fatal car crash last January, Jim Jones sat down with SOHH to discuss the aftermath and what impact the accident has had on his life moving forward.
Coincidentally, Jones said he maintains a warp-speed lifestyle despite almost meeting his ultimate demise.
"Um, that's a funny thing, man," Jones told SOHH when asked if his life perspective has changed since the near-fatal car crash. "When sh*t like that happens, immediately off top you re-evaluate a lot of things that's going on and sh*t like that. And then for some reason, I found myself doing a 120 [miles per hour] on the highway the other day. It's the fast life, let's go." (SOHH)
Following the January 17th crash, photos from the site hit the Internet.
I woke up today to a very scary email and photo from the homie Jim Jones....his passenger van was totaled in this car accident this morning. Thankfully, he also included this message, "Just walked away from this [crash]. God bless us." Just looking at this gives me anxiety remembering recent accidents that were much more tragic. So I'm thankful Jim is okay, and these kinds of messages always remind me to tell people I care about them. Also....please drive safely. No drinking. No sleepiness. No texting (that's my new year's resolution). And always seatbelts. Sorry for the den-mother post. (Miss Info TV)
Additional reporting claimed the wreck occurred in Atlanta, Georgia.

In late January, Jones released a song called "Crash" reflecting on what took place.
"After they finished searching the van for drugs/The officer told me, if I don't believe in God, now is the time to start/I was halfway asleep, faded off the sour/Not knowing that could have been my last hour/I seen it clear, we was on 85/Road looking clear, doing 'bout 85/A smooth sail turned into a crazy ride/I wish I could say a n*gga watched the way he drive/But he was just trying to swerve a deer/I didn't get to see him but the Lord heard my prayers/Head-on collision with the car rail/And I'm a firm believer that God's real/I felt my van crushed against the hard steel/At that point, I can't tell y'all how my heart feel/I seen it happen, we were spinning like a bottle top/And I was praying, 'Lord, please make the bottle stop.' ..." ("Crash")
