Los Angeles Times - - OBITUARIES - — Veron­ica Rocha

A rap­per best known for the 1990s song “Black in Amer­ica” was killed over the week­end in a car crash in Mal­ibu.

Dewayne Coleman, 47, known as MC Supreme, was pro­nounced dead early Satur­day by L.A. County fire­fight­ers.

He was in the driver’s seat of a parked Honda Civic when the ve­hi­cle was hit about 6:20 a.m. by a GMC pickup on Pa­cific Coast High­way at Cor­ral Canyon Road, ac­cord­ing to the Los An­ge­les County Sher­iff ’s Depart­ment. The truck f lipped, then slid into a parked GMC Sierra.

Coleman died, and his fe­male pas­sen­ger was hos­pi­tal­ized with mod­er­ate in­juries. The driver and pas­sen­ger in the GMC Sierra were un­in­jured.

The driver of the GMC pickup, Philip Thomas Tor­res II, 34, of Ox­nard, suf­fered mi­nor in­juries. He was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of ve­hic­u­lar man­slaugh­ter.

Traf­fic in­ves­ti­ga­tors are look­ing into whether drugs or al­co­hol were a fac­tor in the crash.
