MIAMI – Florida rapper Tafia, who is signed under Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers label, was involved in a fiery crash Thursday morning in the city of Miami.

The crash occurred around 3:30 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of State Road 112 near Northwest 12th Avenue.

According to Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Alex Camacho, an SUV and a tractor-trailer collided, causing the tractor-trailer to lose control and collide into a concrete barrier wall.

About 100 gallons of fuel spilled onto the roadway, causing the tractor-trailer to catch on fire.

Camacho said the driver of the tractor-trailer suffered minor burns.

Tafia, who is from North Miami and was driving his 2021 Audi SUV, was being followed by his entourage in another vehicle.

He told a trooper that a car cut him off and he turned right. He said the driver of the tractor-trailer appeared to not notice him and turned right too, sandwiching the rapper’s SUV against the barrier wall.

Members of Tafia’s crew told Local 10 News reporter Parker Branton that Tafia sustained some minor cuts to his arm and some minor burns.

Camacho said State Road 112 was completely shut down between Northwest 17th Avenue and 22nd Avenue after the crash.

The official cause of the crash remains under investigation.
