The Marvel star who tragically passed away alongside three of his children had reportedly taken them trick or treating before the horror crash occurred.

On October 31 Taraja Ramsess, best known for being a stuntman in Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther, was involved in a horrific car accident with a truck on the way home resulting in the death of the entertainer as well as three of his children including his 13-year-old daughter Sundari, his 10-year-old son Kisasi, and his newborn daughter Fugibo Ramsess.

His ex-wife Selena and two of the pair's daughters survived the crash.

The Mirror reported that investigators who looked into the matter concluded that Ramsess took an exit ramp where a tractor-trailer was broken down in the left lane of an Atlanta-area highway when they collided.

Taking to Instagram after the tragedy, the 41-year-old late stuntman's mom Akili Ramsess confirmed the news of her family members' passing alongside a series of photos.

"My beautiful, loving, talented son Taraja @chop.saki, along with two of my grand babies, his 13 yo daughter Sundari and his 8-week old newborn daughter Fujibo, were killed the previous night in a horrific traffic accident," the heartbroken grandmother wrote in a post on the platform, before later confirming his 10-year-old son also passed away.

She then went on to talk about how "special" her son was.

"All who knew and met him know how special Taraja was," she continued. "He had a deep capacity for love and loved his children more than all. He loved his martial arts, motorcycles and all things related to filmmaking. He a very droll yet wicked sense of humor & yet could be as cornball corny as can be.

"Sundari, Sunny as she was called, also reflected that special light," she said of the eldest daughter before adding: "Funny & loved to dance. Oh God! I can't believe they're gone! We are grieving and remain prayerful for my grandchildren's recovery.

"Thank you to so many who have already reached out with kind words and prayers," she concluded the post.

The late stunt actor was also part of the crew at filmmaker Ava DuVernay’s distribution company ARRAY. DuVernay honored Ramsess in a touching tribute post on Instagram.

"I remember one day on set, we didn’t have enough Black background actors for a key scene. I had to recruit my crew members to be on-camera. Taraja was the first to say yes. Yes, I’ll do my real job and then jump into this wild scene playing a tough guy with a gun for you. From there – everyone else said yes too. He was that kind of person. A leader. A light," she wrote.

"Taraja. His name is like music. We will continue to sing it. Bless his soul. Bless his memory. Bless his loved ones and the many comrades he leaves here as he journeys on," DuVernay concluded.

In the wake of the accident, further details have now been revealed as the investigation into the crash continues.

TMZ recently reported that the Black Panther extra had been wrapping up a night of trick-or-treating with his kids before the crash took place.

His mother told the outlet that she'd heard the news from her son's ex-wife who was inconsolable, and the situation was made more difficult by the fact that different members of the family had been taken to different hospitals by first responders following the crash.

A GoFundMe was set up for the family, which has now raised over $109,000.

Our thoughts are with Ramsess' family and friends at this heartbreaking time.
