‘Black Panther’ Stunt Performer Taraja Ramsess & 3 Of His Kids Killed In Car Crash
Taraja Ramsess, a stunt performer who worked on the “Black Panther” films, has died at the age of 41, as have three of his children. The accomplished stuntman’s truck collided with a tractor-trailer that had broken down in the left lane in Atlanta on the night of Halloween, the DeKalb County Police Department told NBC News in a statement. Taraja’s mother Akili Ramsess confirmed the tragic news in an Instagram post on Nov. 2, writing in part, “My beautiful, loving, talented son Taraja @chop.saki, along with two of my grand babies, his 13 yo daughter Sundari and his 8-week old newborn daughter Fujibo, were killed the previous night in a horrific traffic accident.” She added that two of her granddaughters survived and that her 10-year-old grandson Kisasi was on life support. She sadly confirmed two days later that Kisasi had died.
