One Half of Kid ‘N Play in Car Accident

Play, one-half of ’90s hip-hop duo Kid ‘N Play, was caught in the middle of a police chase and subsequently hurt in a car crash involving his SUV and robbery suspect Raul Riva Aldamo’s vehicle in Raleigh, North Carolina, on December 29.

According to officials, Aldamo was behind the wheel of the getaway vehicle and eventually shot by police. Aldamo’s car crashed into Play’s, ending the police chase. Play, whose real name is Christopher Martin, was taken to a local hospital and eventually released on January 2. Aldamo died in the accident.

Martin and former bandmate Kid, born Christopher Reid, saw much success in the early ’90s with their colorful, clean-cut image, which spawned a Saturday morning cartoon. The duo brought their act to the big screen in 1990 with ‘House Party,’ followed by ‘House Party 2,’ ‘Class Act’ and ‘House Party 3.’

Martin is currently a teacher at North Carolina Central University, and recently completed a documentary on gang life in Durham.
