Two days before her birthday, Natina Reed, a member of the '90s R&B group Blaque and star of the 2000 cheerleading movie Bring It On, was fatally struck by a car in Georgia on Friday. She was 32.
According to a statement released by the Gwinnett Police Department, the driver of the vehicle that hit Reed called 911 at 10:30 p.m. on Friday. Reed was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center and pronounced dead at 10:59 p.m.
"Preliminary information indicates that Reed was in the roadway on Lawrenceville Highway near Hamilton Road when struck," reads the statement, which adds that the driver "was determined to be not at fault and there are no charges pending."
Reed is survived by her 10-year-old son, Tren Brown, whose father is the rapper Kurupt.
Fellow Blaque members Brandi Williams and Shamari Fears-DeVoe issued a joint statement on Saturday. "We are devastated by the loss of our group member, sister and friend," reads the statement. "She will forever be missed and her global influence eternally felt."
On Saturday, Reed's Bring It On co-star Gabrielle Union tweeted: "#RIP #Sad #BringItOn."
