Lil Scrappy was hospitalized this week after his white Mercedes crashed into a utility pole on the side of the road in Aventura, Fla. on Sunday (June 3). It was a scary story, and newly surfaced surveillance footage of the incident, obtained by TMZ, shows how the accident went down.
The crash took place early Sunday morning, after the “No Problem” rapper and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star paid a visit to the King of Diamonds strip club in Miami, according to TMZ’s initial report. In the new footage, the car can be seen driving along an empty road’s shoulder, straddling the curb and causing sparks to fly. Moments later, the car careens head-on into a thick wooden utility pole. A police report lists Scrappy as the vehicle’s driver.
While it was originally reported that there were no witnesses, TMZ also obtained a 911 call from a woman who apparently saw the crash and its aftermath.
“Me and my friends was just driving home and then we saw somebody crash, and this man’s on the floor,” the caller says in the audio. When asked the type of vehicle, the woman replies, “They in a white Mercedes.”
Local law enforcement reportedly declined to pursue criminal charges, and did not recover any drugs or alcohol on the scene. Still, Scrappy broke his foot, and the other passenger landed in intensive care, according to TMZ. Let’s hope they both end up better than the crumpled Mercedes.
