Nicolas was driving a silver Lexus that plowed into the back of a big rig on a Miami highway early Tuesday morning. Emergency responders raced to the scene and transported Jojo to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

He was either under the influence, not paying attention, asleep, or following WAY too close. There's no way the 18 wheeler could stop faster than his Lexus under any legal condition. Thank God the innocent trucker survived.
