Ashanti’s cousin killed by drunk driver

R&B singer Ashanti pulled out of a scheduled concert in South Africa over the weekend, after her cousin was killed by a 17-year-old drunk driver. Quinshae Snead was on her way to Ashanti’s hotel to pick up something for the Shanti before her Saturday concert when the accident occurred. According to police, the 20-year-old was a passenger in a car that was rear-ended. Snead was flung from the car as it rolled over and thrown into the path of another car in the opposite lane. The 17-year-old suspect was driving without a license and had stolen his mother’s car, according to a Johannesburg metro police spokesman. The teenager was arrested for drunken driving and hospitalised. The driver of the car Snead was in was also injured and taken to hospital.
