Natina Reed, of the 1990s R&B girl group Blaque, died from the impact of an oncoming car early Saturday morning in Atlanta. She was credited as the songwriter of the group that released such hits as “808” and “Bring It All To Me” and had an acting cameo as a cheerleader in the 2000 movie “Bring It On.”

The driver called 911 immediately when Reed was struck. As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “it does not appear that the driver has any fault in this event.” Natina Reed was standing in a roadway talking on the phone moments before she was hit.

Reed’s betrothed and father of her son, Dogg Pound rapper Kurupt, expressed his gratitude for the outpouring of condolences for himself and 10-year-old Tren Brown, who now has a foundation under his name as he continues without Reed. She died in notably similar circumstances to her mentor, another all-girl group figure, TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, both lives ending in their early 30s.

A public funeral is planned to take place on Friday or Saturday, according to Channel 2 Action News. No charges are being levied against the driver. Reed’s mother, Tamara Goodridge, said, “We’re not looking to be victims. We’re not seeking to be angry, but we do need a resolve.”
