PINT-SIZED reality star Ashley “Ms. Minnie” Ross perished after a hit-and-run accident — but didn’t die without a big fight! The popular “Little Women: Atlanta” cast member was driving alone in Georgia at approximately 11 p.m. on April 26 when her car and another vehicle plowed into each other in a horrifying head-on collision, according to Fulton County police.
Mortally wounded Ashley was found by rescuers unconscious and barely clinging to life inside her mangled vehicle!
“They got a pulse, and they did revive her. She was not DOA [at the hospital],” her publicist said.
“She was there basically 24 hours before she transitioned. They didn’t think she would make it to the morning, so we had a few more hours with her than could have happened.”
Ashley, who was 34 years old, died at 10:30 p.m. on April 27 at Grady Memorial Hospital.
The beloved reality star was an original cast member on the Lifetime show, which debuted in 2016 and follows ladies living with dwarfism who try to make a splash in Atlanta’s hip-hop scene.
Sassy Ashley was a fan favorite, and insiders said it’s unlikely the show would survive her loss. “She’s one of the main reasons people tuned in,” said one industry insider.
