A MACK truck rear-ended rapper 50 Cent's car in a scary accident on the Long Island Expressway, sending him to the hospital with possible neck and back injuries, according the artist's website.
Thisis50.com posted pictures of the scene of the accident, which occurred on Monday night (local time), and images of the rapper on a stretcher with his head and neck immobilised.
"50 cent was in a bad accident tonight as his bulletproof SUV was rear ended by a Mack truck on the LIE in NYC," the website said.
"He was put on a stretcher and taken to the nearest Queens hospital where they are currently running tests on his neck and back. His driver is also currently in the hospital as the SUV almost flipped over."
The truck's driver told cops his load shifted, leading him to lose control of the semi, according to the website.
A rep for the 36-year-old artist, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, confirmed he was in a crash but could not offer any additional details.
