Lil Yachty Totals Ferrari in Atlanta Crash
Lil Yachty is safe after a scary accident that wrecked his car.
The “Oprah’s Bank Account” rapper was driving during a rain storm on Georgia State Route 400 in Atlanta on Monday when his red Ferrari Spider spun out, crashing into a barrier along the shoulder. According to TMZ, there was a lot of standing water on the road and Yachty lost control of the vehicle, causing it to hydroplane.
Yachty walked away relatively unscathed, with only minor injuries to his arm. Emergency crews responded to the scene, but it’s unclear if he was hospitalized for treatment.
A grateful Yachty took to Twitter following the accident. “So thankful for my life. Never take it for granted,” he tweeted late Monday.
So thankful for my life. Never take it for granted.

The Ferrari didn’t fare as well. The exotic whip, which starts at $275,000, was totaled in the crash and is reportedly beyond repair.
Last month, Yachty released his album Lil Boat 3 featuring the Drake and DaBaby-assisted single “Oprah’s Bank Account,” plus appearances from Future, A$AP Rocky, and Tyler, the Creator.
