The “Original Don Dada” is dead. Veteran dancehall artiste and part-time actor Leonard Ford, aka Louie Rankin, was killed in a car crash in Canada last week. Ford, 66, died last Monday in Ontario, in a crash which reportedly included a transport truck and another vehicle.
Ontario authorities reported that Ford’s car somehow hit a transport truck while travelling on a highway. He was pronounced dead at the scene, having apparently died instantly in the collision. The truck driver reportedly did not endure any physical injuries, and Ontario police are still investigating the cause of the crash.
