Reports of what took place Sunday (June 24) surfaced online yesterday.
Soulja Boy got into a car accident in his gleaming red Bentley moments ago in Hollywood … and TMZ has pics of the aftermath. TMZ spoke with the other driver involved, who tells us, Soulja crossed into his lane and smashed into him while he was waiting for the light to change. People close to Soulja say the rapper wasn’t even driving — his bodyguard was. They say the other driver ran a red light and hit him. So far, it’s unclear who’s really at fault. Police are currently on the scene with a tow truck, which is loading up Soulja’s ride. There were no serious injuries. (TMZ)
The victim’s husband has already stepped forward to place the blame on Soulja Boy.
The husband of the other driver in last night’s Soulja Boy car crash tells TMZ — there’s no two ways about it … the accident was all Soulja’s fault. TMZ spoke to the other driver’s husband moments after last night’s crash, and he tells us, he and his wife — who’s pregnant right now — were waiting at a red light in the turning lane, when the rapper’s red Bentley swerved across a double yellow line and collided with their vehicle. The footage appears to back up the man’s story. Because the other driver is pregnant, her husband says she was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital as a precaution following the crash. (TMZ)
Last year, Soulja Boy lost his brother to a fatal car crash.
Soulja Boy’s half-brother, Deion Jenkins, 14, passed away last night (March 20) after getting involved in a car accident in Charleston, MS. As of press time the details of the crash are unknown. SB expressed his loss on his Twitter account earlier this morning. “[At] home crying my eyes out I can’t believe my lil bro is gone…today is not my day. RIP lil bro love you always :(.” (XXL Mag)
