Music industry insiders, the Todds, owners of the Taboo chain of nightclubs in Jamaica, were the victims of a burglary Monday night when two persons stole their Range Rover SVR from their South Florida home. The culprits then crashed the vehicle into a tree after a high speed car chase trying to elude the cops.

"My daughter said she heard something outside, then said 'where's daddy going with the car so early?", and when I stepped outside to investigate, the vehicle was gone, so I called the cops. Later, we heard that the vehicle had crashed in a tree while trying to evade the cops, a man and a woman were injured, the woman is in a critical condition, and the man is also hospitalised," Corey Todd, who is also the manager of dancehall star Masicka, said. 

Shemara Todd, the manager of social media maven-turned-recording artiste DyDy, shared a video of the vehicle's wreckage on her Instagram account with the caption, "it could be worse". The vehicle, which reportedly values over US$115,000, was totaled in the crash.

On a sombre note, the crash happened two years to the day that Shemara Todd was involved in a shooting incident where her vehicle was attacked by gun-toting men riding motorcycles. She sustained injuries during the shooting incident and the crash, but made a full recovery.
