A spokesperson from Lifetime and “Little Women: Atlanta” stated they were “deeply saddened” by the news of her death.
“Our heartfelt condolences go out to her family and friends. Ms. Minnie was an amazing talent and a special part of Little Women: Atlanta. She will be dearly missed,” the statement said.
Police in South Fulton, directly outside Atlanta, stated that the accident included a Nissan Sentra which was voyaging south when the driver lost control of the vehicle, went into the northbound path, and struck a Ford Focus.
While specialists didn’t indicate which vehicle had a place with Ross and which to the next driver, they said the driver of the Nissan was brought to the clinic while the driver of the Ford Focus just sustained “minor wounds,” and the accident is a piece of an ongoing investigation.
Her fans posted videos of Ross from “Little Women: Atlanta,” which made some scenes from the show go viral.
