Weezy was treated at a local hospital -- and one witness told a local TV station the rapper was accompanied by several members of his entourage. According to the hospital, Wayne was treated and released.

Wayne seems to be doing OK -- because he was already tweeting about the crash this morning ... calling the injury a "gnarly gash."
