His son, 10 year old Kisasi, and a three year old girl were taken to the hospital in critical condition, where Kisasi died of his injuries on Sunday.

Tributes have been flooding in for the much-loved performer and his family, with a GoFundMe page set up on behalf of his mum already raising thousands.
"Kisasi or Sauce the Boss – brought so much joy to the lives of so many. [He] was surrounded by loving family members every moment he spent in the hospital," the GoFundMe page shared about the 10 year old.
Taraja's mum, Akili Ramsess, posted on Instagram: "All who knew and met him know how special Taraja was. He had a deep capacity for love and loved his children more than all. He loved his martial arts, motorcycles and all things related to filmmaking.
"He a very droll yet wicked sense of humour and yet could be as cornball corny as can be. Sundari, Sunny as she was called, also reflected that special light. Funny and loved to dance. Oh God! I can't believe they're gone!"
Filmmaker Ave DuVernay paid tribute to Taraja on Instagram., writing: "He walked like a king. And to me, always acted like one. He was a part of our crew family at ARRAY. He left us last night forever in a way that makes the hearts of all who knew him break into a million pieces."
