Twista, the Chicago rapper known for his ultra-quick flow and rise to the top of the charts, was hurt in a fatal van crash that killed a member of his security staff. The artist was treated and released from Saint Vincent Health Center in Erie, PA after his van crashed on Interstate 90 just after 4 a.m. Monday. The van was headed from Syracuse, N.Y. to Chicago when the crash occurred, and police are investigating how the van veered off the road and then rolled over.
