The artist, born Darryl Kevin Richardson, and a friend were found outside of the car on the ground when authorities arrived at the scene, according to TMZ. Both were incoherent and could not explain the events leading up to the wreck. 

While the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star believes his pal fell asleep at the wheel before the vehicle crashed into a pole, police say Scrappy was actually the driver. 

The 34-year-old, who suffered a broken foot, is currently recovering at a hospital, and he later took to Instagram to update his followers on his progress.
