Atlanta’s WSB-TV reports the accident involved a single car, not a hit-and-run as originally reported. The rapper was ejected from the vehicle during the crash and died at the scene while two women were also injured, but survived. Shawty Lo’s Twitter account has been updated with a statement as well.
