The daughter of hip-hop trailblazer Eric B. was reportedly hospitalized after a serious car crash in Connecticut on Sunday.

The news was shared on social media by The Real Sister2Sister 2.0, who wrote that "[Erica] Barrier is suffering from severe neck and spine fractures, among her many life threatening injuries, confirmed Eric B's long time publicist," and that, "The family is at her bedside and asking for your prayers."'

Page Six spoke to the cops who confirmed the information. According to their source, Erica, 28, was in a Mini Cooper Countryman on I-91 in Connecticut just before 1 a.m. on Sunday morning when it "stopped in the center lane" and an oncoming truck "was unable to stop in time and impacted the rear of [Erica's car]."

She "sustained serious injuries," according to the police report. The truck driver was not injured. They have said that the investigation into the crash is still ongoing.

Eric B. is best known for being one half of Eric B.& Rakim -- a Long Island hip hop duo formed in Long Island that dominated the 80's.
