Taraja Ramsess, a 41-year-old stuntman known for his work in movies like Black Panther and The Avengers, died in a tragic car crash in Georgia on Halloween night.

The crash also claimed the lives of three of his children, including a newborn daughter. Ramsess was driving with his children when his vehicle crashed into a broken-down tractor-trailer.


He was behind the wheel, but the exact cause of the crash remains unclear. Tragically, his 13-year-old daughter Sundari, 10-year-old son Kisasi, and eight-week-old daughter Fugibo all lost their lives in the accident.


Kisasi passed away four days after the crash, and three-year-old daughter Shazia survived with minor injuries. Ramsess was known for his work as a stuntman in movies like Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, and others.


He was described as a dedicated family man and father. A GoFundMe campaign was set up to support the family and has raised over $80,000.
