Famed rock n’ roll artist Little Richard was involved in a crash Monday morning in Murfreesboro.
The accident happened at 11:40 a.m. on S. Church Street.
According to the traffic report, Little Richard, whose real name is Richard Penniman, was riding in the passenger’s seat of a Cadillac sedan driven by 70-year-old Willard Fletcher Jr.
Two other men, Daniel Jones and David Lester, were also riding in the back seat.
As they were driving down S. Church, 44-year-old Shanda Hoosier attempted to turn left out of a Kroger grocery store.
Hoosier ultimately struck the passenger’s side of the Cadillac, the report states.
The Cadillac sustained at least $400 in damage and had to be towed from the scene.
Luckily, no one was injured.
Little Richard rose to fame in the 1950s with hits such as “Tutti-Frutti,” “Long Tall Sally,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly.”
He quickly became a pioneer of and helped shape rock n’ roll music, combining the new, popular genre with soul and R&B.
