were traveling in."We
know from the other witnesses, that the guy made an illegal move that caused the
accident," Cassidy's attorney Simon Rosen told AllHipHop.com. "It was
unfortunate, but thank god he's recovering and that he didn't die. He's getting
better and stronger everyday. I always joked with Cassidy that he was a hard headed
guy and thank god for that - literally." Cassidy,
24, was enroute to a recording studio in Yonkers, NY last Thursday (Oct. 5) shortly
after midnight when the accident occurred. Gonzalez'

who recently regained consciousness, is expected to recover from his injuries."He
went through a large trauma that would have taken the life of less healthy people,"
Rosen said. "He was in good health before the accident. Everybody has supported
him from all over the world. The fraternalism of the Hip-Hop community isn't going
to make headlines, but there are a lot of people that have banned together from
the Hip-Hop community to support Cassidy. It's not all about negativity."
