New York rapper 50 Cent knows the pain Tracy Morgan is in right now. The hip-hop veteran has reacted to buzz about the “Saturday Night Live” icon getting caught up in a Big Apple car accident.
Fif went to Instagram Tuesday and didn’t hold back keeping it 100 on Morgan’s nightmare.
According to law enforcement, the accident resulted in minor damage to Morgan’s reported new $2 million whip.
An NYPD spokesperson told BuzzFeed News the department received a call around 1:20 p.m. about a motor vehicle accident at the intersection of 42nd Street and Tenth Avenue in Manhattan. “When officers got to the scene, they found two vehicles that were involved in a very minor traffic accident where two cars were basically side by side, and as the light turned green the cars touched,” the NYPD spokesperson said. “They rubbed slightly.” (BuzzFeed News)
Additional details have surfaced on Morgan reportedly buying the car just hours before the accident.
TMZ reports that the comedian, 50, had just bought a 2012 Bugatti Veyron at Manhattan Motorcars when a Honda SUV tried to make a last-minute turn and sideswiped Morgan’s new $2 million car. PEOPLE confirmed that the accident occurred. (PEOPLE)
Almost five years ago, Morgan narrowly dodged death in a horrific car crash.
The accident comes nearly five years to the day of the near-fatal accident Morgan was involved in on June 7, 2014, on the New Jersey Turnpike. A Walmart truck driver rear-ended Morgan’s limo bus, killing his friend and mentor, comedian James “Jimmy Mac” McNair. (USA Today)
