Kanye West

What happened? On October 23, 2003 Kanye fell asleep at the wheel while out in Los Angeles and crashed his car on the way back from a late night studio session. He sustained serious injuries and famously fractured his jaw.

Complex says: Kanye’s accident is probably the most famous in hip-hop history. Mostly because Kanye used it as inspiration for “Through The Wire” from The College Dropout.
