Suspected drunk driver kills rapper MC Supreme in car accident

Fans of music from the 1990s may be devastated to learn of what appears to be MC Supreme's untimely death. California police say that his vehicle was struck by a potential drunk driver, killing him in the process. Another person involved in the car accident was injured.

MC Supreme's real name is Dewayne Coleman, and he was especially popular in the 1990s rap scene. The 47-year-old rapper was traveling with an unnamed female passenger. At the time of the wreck, his vehicle was reportedly parked on the shoulder of the highway. An oncoming pickup struck his vehicle, forcing it down an embankment before hitting another parked vehicle. The passengers of the second vehicle that was hit were not injured.

Coleman was killed in the wreck and his passenger was transported to the hospital. The driver of the pickup only suffered minor injuries, and he was ultimately arrested by California authorities for his involvement in the wreck. He has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and a DUI, although exactly what his blood-alcohol content was at the time of the wreck was not immediately made known.

While there is little doubt that Coleman's death will be mourned by many fans, his family and friends will likely be affected the most. It is possible that his family will choose to file a wrongful death suit on behalf of Coleman's estate, which can be used to seek compensation for damages related to the car accident. Coleman's passenger has the same right to attempt to recover recourse as a result of the wreck, although this would be accomplished through the successful navigation of a personal injury claim.
