Timbaland - Timbaland Avoids Driving After Fatal Car Crash

Hip-hop superproducer Timbaland steers clear of driving because he still has flashbacks of a tragic car accident which claimed the life of a female friend.
The star had just begun to taste success as a beatmaker after working with 1990s R&B singer DeVante when he decided to splurge his cash on a new vehicle.
He took the car out for a late night spin with a pal, but the ride ended in tragedy when he hit a patch of black ice on the road and smashed into a tree.
Timbaland managed to climb out of the mangled wreckage but his passenger wasn't so lucky and died at the scene.
In an E! True Hollywood Story special, he said, "The car was wrapped around the tree like a candy cane."
He cried for days after the accident and suffered nightmares - and he has struggled to come to terms with the loss ever since.
He added, "I still get flashbacks when I'm in the car, that's why I don't like to drive. I haven't moved on from it (the accident), I still deal with it. I just thank god I'm here. I'm not supposed to be here."

I just wrote this comment on another blog:I've seen some killers in my youth days as well. Not sure what's worse, the ones that died, or the ones left crippled by the car accidents. One kid we played bball with and that was over in a flash, one night. A sister of one of my ex-girlfirends got murdered by the driver - crashing on his own, like this guy - everyone in the car was lightly injured, except her because she sat in the front and died on the scene. It doesn't stop there, the list is quite sad and long. Why are they able to get away with it, everyone must be held accountable for their actions. Had he been going the speed limit, most probably nothing would've happened. Bring him to trial, avenge the girl's death; let the truth prevail and justice for all.
