Rapper 2 Chainz was reportedly injured in a Miami car crash early Saturday morning.
According to TMZ, which first reported the accident, the 46-year-old Georgia-born rapper, birth name Tauheed Epps, was in a car that was trying to exit Interstate 95 when another car smashed into the back of the car carrying 2 Chainz.
2 Chainz posted video images of himself from inside an ambulance to his Instagram Story. Visible from the ambulance doors that extend beyond a pair of outstretched legs on a stretcher, you can see a paramedic about to shut the door. A black vehicle, with front end damage, is seen on the roadway.
Molly Best, a Florida Highway Patrol communications officer, would not say whether 2 Chainz was the man who was injured, but confirmed with the Miami Herald that there was a crash involving three vehicles that occurred near the intersection of State Road 112 westbound and Northwest 22nd Avenue in Miami about 4:25 a.m. Saturday.
The cars were a 2016 Mercedes-Benz, a 2013 Nissan and a 2010 Toyota. “There were no fatalities and at least one adult male was transported to an area hospital,” Best said in an email.
According to TMZ, 2 Chainz was in Miami for Art Basel. He had left the Miami strip club Booby Trap before the crash, according to the celebrity site.
2 Chainz’s most popular album, his 2012 debut, “Based on a T.R.U. Story,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart and featured guests including Kanye West, Drake and Lil Wayne.
