According to sources, the car the pair were travelling in drifted across the road into on coming traffic crashing head on into a tractor. After the collision the vehicle struck a telephone pole and careered 300 ft through a field.

Apparently the vehicle they were driving was bought by Jay-Z for his nephew who he has made numerous references of to in his songs including in ‘Heart Of The City (Ain’t No Love)’ from ‘The Blueprint.

Jay-Z was reportedly especially close to his nephews and once said: "I carry my nephews like my sons, always have and they have filled that void for me."
