A preliminary investigation shows that the auto accident that killed Little Women: Atlanta star Ashley “Ms. Minnie” Ross was not a hit-and-run as previously reported.

The crash, which happened Sunday night (April 26), taking the life of the 34-year-old reality TV star, was actually a head-on collision and the result of a mishap with her car, authorities now say.

"The initial crash investigation shows that Ms. Ross was traveling south in a Nissan Sentra on Old National Highway," South Fulton, Georgia police said in a statement to PEOPLE. "Her car hit the right-side curb, crossed into the northbound lanes and struck a Ford Focus that was traveling north head-on.

"There was no third vehicle involved," a police spokesperson continued. "There has not been any mention of driving under the influence is a factor."

Police said Ross was taken to a nearby hospital where she succumbed to her injuries. The driver of the other vehicle had minor injuries and was treated at the scene of the accident.
