Lil Yachty totaled his red 2020 Ferrari 488 yesterday (June 22) in his Atlanta hometown after spinning out of control on the freeway amid heavy rainfall.
According to local news outlet WSB-TV Atlanta, the hydroplaning accident took place on Interstate 75/85, where Yachty’s sports car hit the left median wall before spinning out across seven lanes and eventually smashing into the freeway shoulder. “So thankful for my life. Never take it for granted,” the Lil Boat rapper wrote on Twitter yesterday before sharing intense images of the accident today (June 23) with the caption “blessed.”
TMZ reported that emergency crews arrived on the scene where Yachty walked away “relatively unscathed, with only minor injuries to his arm.” It remains unclear if he visited the hospital afterward, but TMZ wrote that the 22-year-old artist received a citation for driving too fast given the weather conditions, failing to stay in the lane, and driving in the carpool lane. He also received a warning for driving without having his license on him.
