Chance was on the scene to help someone who found themselves in a terrible accident this past Easter. Now he’s hoping to know about the status of the driver after not hearing back about it. 🙏 Lets hope the gentleman came out of the wreck ok. Props to Chance for jumping to action as best he could
As Chance recounted on his IG account:
Ay so I never told this to the world but my friends can merch. I saved a persons by myself on Easter Sunday this year omw to church.
Basically I was driving to church dolo, about to go south on lakeshore [drive] and another car drives into the wall in front of me goin like 90 mph comin off the exit. I was the only person out there when it first happened and his car was on fire so I had to break his window take off his seatbelt let his seat back and pull a whole grown man out the car unconscious.
Though initially unsure of the man’s recovery process, after sharing the story on IG, Chance was contacted by the man’s nephew:

“A kid DM’d me saying it was his uncle and that he lived!!”
As the Chicago-born rapper said in his song “Angels”: “I got my city doing front flips. When every father, mayor, rapper jumped ship. I guess that’s why they call it where I stay. Clean up the streets so my daughter could have somewhere to play.”
Chance truly has made his city a better place, one his daughter and others can be proud to live in.
