“The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
While Ross’ rep is saying it was a hit-and-run, cops investigating the accident told TMZ that it appears Ms. Minnie lost control of her Nissan Sentra and swerved into opposing traffic.
Cops say she struck a Ford Focus, and the driver of that car suffered minor injuries. Ross, however, was seriously injured.
Her family confirmed her passing with a statement posted on her Instagram account. Ross had been on Lifetime’s spinoff of “Little Women: LA” since it started in 2016. Several of her cast members posted condolences and memories of her after hearing about her death.
Ross was hailed as “the most beautiful, kind, giving, generous human ever” by a rep for her reality show. She was a Tennessee native.
