Ramsess was driving in a pickup truck with his children and took an exit on Interstate 20 in Dekalb County, Georgia, on October 31 when a horror car crash occurred, as per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (via The Mirror).

The stuntman’s vehicle collided with a tractor-trailer – also known as a lorry – and the impact killed Ramsess, his eldest and his newborn instantly.

Ramsess’ son tragically died several days later, according to MailOnline.

Two other children were reportedly taken to hospital. They are believed to be in a stable condition.

A GoFundMe page has been set up on behalf of Ramsess’ mum, Akili, which features a message paying tribute to her son and grandchildren.

It reads: “Akili Ramsess, a dear friend and colleague to so many, lost her eldest son, the beautiful and talented Taraja, and three of her grandchildren – Taraja’s 13-year-old daughter Sundari and 8-week-old daughter, and 10-year-old son Kisasi – in a horrific traffic accident on Oct 31.

“We are not sure what her immediate needs are, but we know there will be many. Anyone who knows Akili knows that her greatest joys are her three boys and 10 grandchildren. Her love and devotion to her family knows no limits.”

On November 4, an update on Kisasi’s death was shared, reading: “We are so sorry to bring you this devastating update. Ten-year-old Kisasi passed away today. Kisasi – or ‘Sauce the Boss’ – brought so much joy to the lives of so many was surrounded by loving family members every moment he spent in the hospital.

“Please continue to wrap your arms around Akili and her family.”
