Diana Ross Hurt As Car Crashes Into Her Limo Bethlehem police said a woman who ran a stop sign Wednesday afternoon crashed her sport utility vehicle into a limo shuttling Diana Ross to the Sands casino where she was scheduled to perform that evening.
The crash happened just before 5 p.m. in the 100 block of East Third Street, police Chief Mark DiLuzio said.
Ross, a solo artist and former lead singer of the Supremes, still performed at her 7 p.m. show at the Sands Event Center.
Ross was on her way when an SUV driven by a 22-year-old New Jersey woman ran through a stop sign, police said. The woman received a traffic citation, according to the Associated Press.
