The driver of the vehicle, who was not charged in the incident, called 911 while the passenger administered CPR. Reed was pronounced dead at Gwinnett Medical Center.

Blaque, best known for the 2000 hit “Bring it All to Me,” was discovered by TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. The group’s self-titled album debuted in 1999. Lopes herself died in a 2002 car accident in Honduras.
