Information about Sunday’s car crash is scarce, and conflicting. While the reality TV star’s team called it a hit-and-run, cops believe the incident may have been caused by Ross losing control of her car and swerving into oncoming traffic. According to TMZ: “… it appears Ms. Minnie lost control of her Nissan Sentra and swerved into opposing traffic. Cops say she struck a Ford Focus, and the driver of that car suffered minor injuries.”
Minnie’s suffered serious injuries and was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital where she passed away the next day.
Fans are understandably shaken over the news of Ross’ passing and have taken to social media to express their feelings…
