MIAMI, FL - A Florida rapper was involved in a crash on State Road 112 in Miami early Thursday morning, according to a report by WPLG.

The rapper Tafia, from North Miami, was driving an Audi SUV that collided with a tractor-trailer near Northwest 12th Avenue at about 3:30 a.m.  He reported that he and the tractor-trailer driver were both turning right at the same time, resulting in the collision.  Tafia was reported to have sustained minor cuts and burns, while the truck driver suffered minor burns.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the tractor-trailer struck one of the expressway's concrete barrier walls. The truck spilled about 100 gallons of fuel onto the roadway and then caught fire.

All lanes between 17th Avenue and 22nd Avenue were shut down for the crash investigation and cleanup.
