Twista Hit With Lawsuit From Touring Accident

ImageChicago bred rapper Twista and his management team have reportedly been sued by a man who claims he was seriously injured after a 2004 tour bus accident.

As previously reported, Twista (born Carl Mitchell) and his entourage were driving from a show in Syracuse, N.Y., to Chicago when their tour bus veered off the road on Erie, PA's Interstate 90 and crashed into a median.

The accident killed Twista's security guard Arthur Dixon, the son of legendary blues singer Willie Dixon, and injured five others.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, Renaldo Jones, who filed his lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court on Wednesday (August 30), charges that the bus driver, Otis Bankhead, fell asleep while driving and lost control of the bus.

Jones, who claims to have broken his collarbone, is seeking unspecified damages from Twista, Bankhead, Showtime Entertainment Agency and its representatives, Rawle Stewart and Tyshawn Carr.

Twista or his management could not be reached for comment on the suit.
