Police confirm that Eazy-E’s son was not killed in accident in Texas

By: Arlene Culpepper

Texas authorities admitted Saturday that they mistakenly identified the son of the late Eazy-E, NWA’s frontman, as one of eight people killed in a two-car collision.

Texas DPS Trooper Ryan Case confirmed that Eric Wright, Jr.’s name was on a rental agreement for one of the vehicles involved in the violent collision on Friday in East Texas. Wright was mistakenly listed as having been killed, but he was not even involved in the accident.

Eric Wright, Jr. uses the stage name “Lil Eazy-E”. He posted on Twitter that some of his close friends died. Occupants of the rental who died were Debra Thompson of Long Beach, California; and Curtis Sander, Michael Mathis and Lawrence Bridnac, III of Compton, California.

The cause of the accident is unknown. It occurred in a curve just outside of Annona, Texas, a town about 150 miles northeast of Dallas. There were no witnesses to the accident that occurred on U.S. Highway 82 and all occupants of both vehicles were killed.
