Friday, 6th October 2006
Early Thursday morning, Philadelphia born rapper Cassidy, was involved in a serious accident in New Jersey when his car collided with a truck.
According to various news reports, the truck swerved into oncoming traffic and crashed into the rear passenger side of vehicle where Cassidy was sitting. The rapper was immediately rushed to Hospital with a fractured skull and a large number of broken bones in the left side of his face. His condition is said to be critical although he is now breathing unaided.
Out of the four people in the car, the rapper was the only one injured and late yesterday afternoon he underwent a CAT scan, which revealed that his brain activity is normal. Cassidy was on his way to the studio where he was working on his third album via Swizz Beats label Full Surface and J Records when the crash happened.
In April he was charged with involuntary manslaughter over the death of Desmond Hawkins in 2005 and served time in prison. The album will mark his return to the rap game following his release and issuing an official statement, Swizz Beatz said “We're all praying and staying positive during this time. Thanks to everyone for their continued support, and please keep Cassidy and his family in your prayers. ”
