Yikes! The fact that 50 Cent’s website is not reporting any serious injuries is hopeful that he will be alright. I absolutely hate driving behind big trucks carrying big loads for this very reason. I’m going to assume that he will be alright but, yeah, these photos are kinda scary. Let’s keep a good thought for Fitty and his well-being.
