Rising rapper Fetty Wap was involved in a motorbike accident at the weekend, colliding with a car. As well as breaking his leg in three places, he is also facing three criminal charges as a result of the smash.

After news of the crash broke, the rapper posted a video on Instagram, assuring fans that he was OK, saying: “I appreciate all my fans praying for me, man. I had a little accident, but I’m straight. I broke my leg in three places, but I’m gonna be alright”.

The driver of the car involved in the accident was also injured and taken to hospital for treatment. Afterwards, New Jersey police issued three summons for the rapper’s arrest, for driving without a licence, driving without insurance, and failing to produce a vehicle registration card.

Fetty Wap released his debut album, ‘Fetty Wap’, on Friday. He is due to begin a US tour in support of the record in New York tonight. It seems that show has been cancelled, though there has not yet been any official statement on this or any other dates.
