According to TMZ, Punch got into a collision with another vehicle on the 10 Freeway, and when he went to check on the other car's occupants, he was struck and killed by another passing vehicle.


Tyga paid tribute to his friend on Instagram Thursday, writing, "Rip Punch.? I know you looking down from a better place."

The 26-year-old's rep told TMZ that the "Stimulated" singer is "devastated, shocked and heartbroken" over the news, which couldn't have come at a worse time given that Tyga is currently basking in his and Kylie Jenner's baby joy. As Life & Style exclusively reported, the couple is expecting their first child together.
