AceShowbiz - Lil Yachty is one lucky man. The DaBaby and Drake collaborator on "Oprah's Bank Account" was recently involved in a single car accident that totaled his Ferrari, but he apparently managed to walk away from the scary crash with only minor injuries.
The terrifying incident reportedly took place on Monday, June 22. According to TMZ, the 22-year-old rapper was driving through heavy rainfall along Georgia State Route 400 in Atlanta when his sports car caught puddles of standing water. It led to him losing control of the car which hydroplaned and smashed into the freeway's barrier.
Though emergency crews were called to the scene, the Mableton, Georgia native was said to suffer only injuries to his arm. It was not immediately clear whether he got treated for the injuries at a hospital. His car, on the other hand, was noted to be unsalvageable. A photo of the wrecked car was published by the outlet.
Later the same day, the "One Night" rapper took to Twitter to share a piece of his mind. While he did not mention anything about his car crash, he did talk about not taking his life for granted. "So thankful for my life," he tweeted. "Never take it for granted."
The car crash report came weeks after Yachty joined a Black Lives Matter protest that spread across the country following the death of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer in Minneapolis. On May 30, he shared an Instagram video of him voicing his thought against racial injustice and police brutality.
"I feel like we gotta stand for something or we'll fall for anything, you know what I'm saying?" he could be heard stating. "We gotta do what we gotta do, we're gonna stick together, because that a most important. Whether you black, whether you white, green, yellow, purple - we're a family and were gonna show them what it takes. Black lives matter and that's what it's gonna be."
In the caption of his post, the MC declared, "I am no different from the next man. Every voice matters and must be heard."
