Driver Of Truck Issued A Summons In Cassidy Accident, Rapper Regains Consciousness

The driver of a truck

that critically injured Philadelphia rapper Cassidy has been issued a summons

for making an improper turn. According

to police, Javier Trujillo Gonzalez, 36, of Carson City, MI, was issued the ticket

for his role in the accident, after his truck ran a red light and crossed into

a an intersection, broad siding the Chevy Suburban that Cassidy and three passengers

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 "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'

truck hit the driver's side of the Suburban, with Cassidy absorbing most of the

impact. Cassidy,

born Barry Reese, suffered a fractured skull and numerous broken bones in his

face. Doctors

have performed CAT scans and so far, have found no abnormalities with his brain

activity. Cassidy,

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."
