Ross is a true professional. The show she was in route to at Sands Casino in Bethlehem, PA went on as scheduled and she graced the stage like only ‘the boss,’ Ms. Ross can.

The 22 year old New Jersey female driver of the SUV was given a traffic violation and the Lincoln town car Ross was being driven in was towed. We’re so grateful that this accident was nothing more than a few bumps and bruises. Ms. Ross still has a lot more years to share with us at 72 years young.
