The accident took place this morning at 1:00 AM. "Mask" was declared dead at the scene. A female passenger, who was ejected from the vehicle, was taken to a local hospital and remains in critical conditions. It is speculated that the Ferrari was racing another high performance vehicle, a Porsche, at the time of the accident.

A statement made by TapouT confirms Lewis’s death: "It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we must regretfully confirm the passing of our beloved friend, brother and co-founder Charles ‘Mask’ Lewis following a car accident that occurred last night.
