Twista, whose real name is Carl Mitchell, was treated and released from Saint Vincent Health Center in Erie, Pa., after the van in which he was riding crashed on Interstate 90 near Girard just after 4 a.m. September 6, police said.

Another man in the van, Arthur Dixon of Chicago, died after he was taken to Hamot Medical Center, authorities said.

Five other men in the van were hurt, none seriously, police and hospital officials said.

The van was headed from Syracuse, N.Y. to Chicago when the crash occurred, said Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook.

No charges have been filed against the driver, whom police identified as Otis Bankhead of Chicago. Police are investigating how the van veered off the road and into the median, where it rolled over.

Mitchell, 30, was originally known as Tung Twista and was listed in Guinness World Records in 1992 as the fastest rapper in the world. His latest album, Kamikaze, is on the SoundScan charts.

Twista had been scheduled to appear in Albany, N.Y. on Monday, but the show was canceled so another rapper on the bill, LL Cool J, could be with his wife after surgery, according to the Web site for Albany’s Pepsi Arena.
