"You gave us all love and laughter brother," wrote Brandon Thomas Lee, son of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. "Love you forever. I hope I get to see you again one day."

An attorney from Milwaukee who was reported missing after a night out in Atlanta died from injuries he sustained in a car crash in Clayton County.

Demetrice Allen was last seen on Dec. 6 when he stopped by TEN ATL, a bar in East Atlanta Village, to drink with friends.

Allen's best friend said Allen's next stop was The Graveyard Tavern on Glenwood Avenue. By 2 a.m., the group noticed Allen was gone.

In response to a text message from LaShauna Wint, Allen said he was heading to The Cookout restaurant on Moreland Avenue for a burger before going home.

Clayton County police were called to a multi-car accident with injuries in the area of Interstate 285 and Old Dixie highway.

Allen's 2015 BMW 328i was among the vehicles involved in the accident. He was determined to be the at-fault driver.

The 30-year-old employment attorney was described as "alert, conscious and combative" with police.

His injuries were not considered life-threatening, but his condition prevented police from identifying him at the accident scene.

Police following up with the hospital where Allen was taken learned he succumbed to his injuries. Hospital staff called the Georgia Bureau of Investigations, who took custody of his body for an autopsy in the GBI crime lab.

Allen's godmother, Daphne Handley, with whom he was staying, reported him missing on Dec. 8.

It wasn't until days later that police realized the deceased man was the attorney reported missing in local and national headlines.

Allen was in Atlanta to interview for a job in the legal department at Delta Airlines, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

"He's overcome so many obstacles in life," said Wint before Allen was identified.

Wint said Allen lost his single mother about 10 years ago.

"He still pushed through and he finished college, top grades, got into the top law school," Wint told Fox6 Now. "He's just a fighter."

South Fulton Police announced Allen's death on Friday, Dec. 13. There was no explanation why authorities failed to contact his next-of-kin after he died.

Kevin Hart's publicist clarified reports that the fallen comedian returned to work after breaking his back in a car crash last month.

Hart reportedly returned to work after his near fatal car crash in which he sustained three back fractures and underwent surgery to fuse his spine on Sept. 2.

The 40-year-old Cancer met with his Jumanji co-stars, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Jack Black and Nick Jonas, to shoot a promo for the Jumanji sequel.

The three actors revised their busy schedules to accommodate Hart.

According to Hart's official statement, he has "not been in full costume for these shoots and he's not walking much for them either - sitting through most of the day - even though he can walk on his own."

A source says Hart arrived for the shoot in a wheelchair.

The statement goes on to say he does not anticipate returning to work full-time until early next year if his health permits.

As for the other two people injured in the car wreck - Jared Black and his fiancee Rebecca Broxterman - they filed a lawsuit against the pint-sized actor for failure to provide safety equipment in his vintage 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.

Hart expresses, "nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery," according to the statement.

Two people injured in Kevin Hart's vintage car the night it crashed have lawyered up and plan to sue the comedian and the body shop that customized his muscle car.

Hart was a passenger in his 1970 Plymouth Barracuda driven by his friend Jared Black who lost control of the vehicle and veered off the road just after midnight on Sept. 1.

Both Hart and Black suffered serious back injuries in the crash, but Black's fiancee and Hart's personal trainer Rebecca Broxterman, who was sitting in the back seat, was not seriously hurt.

According to TMZ, Black and Broxterman have lawyered up and plan to sue Hart and the body shop that modified his car.

Broxterman and Black say Hart is negligent for failing to install standard safety features in the 720 horsepower car.

Hart reportedly didn't want safety features such as air bags because he wanted to maintain the car's 1970 authenticity. Airbags weren't standard equipment in all cars until the 1990s.

Broxterman and Black also plan to sue the bodyshop for going ahead with the job despite the car having no safety features.

Hart returned home after spending a week at a rehab facility. He underwent surgery to fuse his spine. He will receive physical therapy at home.

The girlfriend of Cleveland Browns defensive end Chris Smith was hit by a car on the side of a highway after Smith pulled over to fix a flat tire on his Lamborghini.

Petara Cordero, 26, died on Wednesday - just two weeks after giving birth to the couple's first child, a baby girl.

Smith and Cordero were involved in a minor car crash after a flat tire caused the Lambo to spin out of control early Wednesday morning.

Smith pulled over to fix the flat tire, and Cordero stepped out of the vehicle on the side of the road.

She was struck and killed by another car after she walked into the opposite lane from the median and into oncoming traffic on the I-90 West in Cleveland, according to the Daily Mail UK.

Police say the driver, a 47-year-old woman driving a Mazda in oncoming traffic, admitted she had been drinking before she hit Cordero.

Cordero was taken to Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on Wednesday.

She and Smith recently celebrated the birth of their daughter, Haven Harris Smith, just two weeks ago.

Cleveland police said no charges have been filed against the driver and toxicology reports are pending.

Kevin Hart underwent surgery to stabilize three fractures in his back following a serious car crash near his home in Calabasas, Calif. on Sunday.

A surgeon fused three fractures in his spine - two in the upper back and one lower back fracture.

The 40-year-old comedian is said to be heavily medicated and in excruciating pain.

A spinal fracture in three places may mean the patient will have good range of motion in his hands and arms but he will have trouble walking - if not paralyzed from the waist down.

But his doctors say he is expected to make a full recovery, as he didn't suffer a spinal cord injury.

Still, the father-of-three will need physical therapy to help him walk after back surgery.

Hart and two friends were injured when his vintage 1970 Plymouth Barracuda veered off the road, flipped and landed on its roof in a ditch near Mulholland Drive just after midnight on Sunday.

Hart was able to escape the wreckage, but his wife's personal trainer and her husband - who was driving - were trapped inside. First responders used the jaws of life to cut them out of the mangled vehicle.

A passerby spotted the overturned vehicle, observed two people trapped inside, and called 911. "The roof is crushed and the car is pretty totaled," he said.

The witness told police a black SUV arrived at the scene and a man removed Hart through the shattered driver's side window.

Oddly, Hart and his security left the scene of the crash without calling 911 to help his friends.

Hart was at home when an unknown female called 911 approximately 2 hours after the crash.

The woman made the call from inside Hart's home around 2 a.m.

In an unemotional tone she told a dispatcher Hart was "not coherent at all" and he "can't move."

That description was in contrast to information given to the news media by Hart's camp who claimed he was fine, talking and walking around after the crash.

Rumors swirled around the industry that Hart was in much worse condition than his camp was letting on.

Hart's wife Eniko was spotted outside the hospital the next day. She told Splash News that he was awake and talking and he was "going to be just fine."

Hart who is usually very active on social media has not posted an update in 4 days.

Kevin Hart's condition is much worse than his camp revealed in the hours after he was involved in a serious car crash.

A witness told police the diminutive comedian was the first to climb out of the mangled 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that veered off the road and crashed on Sunday night.

A witness called 911 to report people stuck in the wreckage. First responders used the jaws of life to cut them out of the vehicle. But Hart was gone by the time first responders arrived just before 1 a.m. West Coast time.

Later, an unidentified female called 911 from inside Hart's home to say the comedian was "not coherent and can't move." She said something was protruding from his spine.

The 911 call conflicts with earlier reports that Hart was fine, talking and walking around after the crash.

Hart underwent an operation to stabilize his back on Sunday.
