“It is with deep and profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, family member and friend LaShawn Daniels, who was the victim of a fatal car accident in South Carolina,” she wrote.

DETAILS OF THE ACCIDENT

According to the latest update from CBS42, a van driven by Daniels collided with a truck driven by 32-year-old Jackie Dean Moss on SC 5 East of Rock Hill. Daniels’ van reportedly caught fire after the impact which was caused by a third vehicle, a pick-up truck driving West and traveling left of center. Both Daniels and Moss died on the scene.

Daniels was especially proud of his collaboration with the late Michael Jackson. In fact, just last month, he expressed his pride working for the King of Pop in his final album, "Invincible."
