Officials are working to clear the scene of an early morning fiery crash involving a tractor trailer and a well known rapper near downtown Miami that has closed all lanes of the Airport Expressway.
Florida rapper Tafia, who is signed under Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers label, was involved in the accident Thursday morning near Miami International Airport.
The crash occurred around 3:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of State Road 112 near Northwest 12th Avenue.
FHP says a tractor trailer carrying just over 100 gallons of fuel side-swiped the rapper’s Audi SUV and jackknifed hitting the median before bursting into flames.
The driver was able to escape the tractor trailer before it exploded and avoided serious injury. Three passengers in the SUV and Tafia were treated for minor injuries at the scene and none were transported to the hospital.
