The passengers in Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker’s car begged him to slow down before the deadly Sept. 21 crash that killed him, a Fulton County Medical Examiner’s report said. The two women, identified as Deshondria and Destini, told investigators “they were pleading with (Walker) to slow down but he would not.”

“The two females stated that the Decedent exited on the Cascade Road exit ramp and somehow went behind the guardrail onto the grass and then down the embankment,” the report reads. “The Decedent lost control of the vehicle as the car hit the grass and began to fishtail before flipping over, crashing and catching fire. It appears that some of the vehicle’s content burned in the fire and some of the content came out of the vehicle and is spread about the general area.”

Walker, 40 was pronounced dead at the scene. The Medical Examiner’s report says he was not wearing a seatbelt in his 2016 Audi.

He is survived by 11 children. The passengers in the car when he crashed and died were not seriously injured.

The report lists “blunt force injuries of the head” as the cause of Walker’s death. Toxicology results are pending but the Medical Examiner’s report indicated that Walker’s body smelled of alcohol. A prescription bottle containing the medications acetaminophen/hydrocodone and acetaminophen/oxycodone, commonly marketed as Vicodin and Percocet, was found on Walker’s person, the report said.

It also noted that Walker’s passengers took money from his pockets, with permission:

“It is reported that the Decedent had a large sum of money on him and the police officers on the scene allowed the two females to take the money off the Decedent. Additionally, various small denominations of U. S. Currency such as $5 and $1 bills are spread about the general area. Fulton County Crime Scene technician relates that she will document and collect the remaining money.”
