Police Reveal New Details on What Caused T.I.'s Sister Precious' Car Crash That Led to Her Death
New details have emerged about the car crash that led to the death of T.I’s sister Precious Harris, including the fact that there was another person in the vehicle with her at the time.
Previous accounts said that the car crash triggered an asthma attack in Precious, but according to an Atlanta Police Department traffic accident report obtained by TMZ, it was the other way around.
The report reveals that Precious was driving T.I.'s 2013 Dodge Avenger with Kairi Chapman, the rapper’s grandniece when she suffered an asthma attack.
Kairi told the police that Precious passed out at the wheel and veered into a telephone pole. The officer who responded to the situation revealed that Precious was unconscious when he got there. She was breathing but was also beginning to foam at the mouth.
