American rapper Tyler Gregory Okonma, also known as Tyler, the Creator, was involved in a massive car accident earlier this week after his Tesla Model X slammed into a parked Honda CR-V near the UCLA campus in Los Angeles.
According to authorities, the impact was so powerful, the parked car was propelled some 50 feet (15 m) away. Thankfully, nobody was injured, something the Model X definitely helped with.
The rapper later tweeted about the incident, although his explanation was eventually taken down. This is what he said to his followers, as reported by Fox News:
“My big doopy a– usually go to sleep 10:30 (i wake up at 7 er morn) and guess who wanted to finish music super late and dosed off for a few seconds while driving home, im a dumb a– b—h but lil mama don’t have a scratch im lucky. i calmly jumped out the back and called the people. thanks elon for the excessive airbags u a qt. good day sir.”
Reports indicate that no arrests have been made and since there were no injuries, no emergency medical services were called at the scene either. It also appears that Okonma left his info inside the CR-V, whose owner is now expecting a “decent check” from the rapper.
In retrospect, we’re pretty sure that Mr Okonma probably wishes he would have taken an Uber/Lyft home. These services exist for precisely these types of scenarios.
