Her management team confirmed the news in a statement posted on Instagram. “It is with profound sadness that we confirm on behalf of the family of Ashley Ross aka “Ms Minnie” of Little Women Atlanta has succumbed to injuries from a tragic hit and run car accident today at the age of 34,” the statement said. “The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
Her representative Liz Dixson told CNN that the car accident happened in Atlanta around 11 p.m. Sunday, and Ross passed away about 24 hours later in Grady Memorial Hospital.
Ross was one of the original cast members on Little Women: Atlanta, which launched in 2016 as a spinoff to Little Women: LA. It follows a group of women with dwarfism and has run for five seasons.
