It is indeed a sad day and the YouTube community is mourning the sudden and tragic demise of Corey La Barrie.
His mother and brother confirmed in separate Instagram posts that Corey was the victim of a drunk-driving accident, which took place on his 25th birthday. On Monday afternoon, his brother Jarrad La Barrie shared, "This isn't something i thought i would ever have to sit here and type out for a very long time or what i wanna do right now but everyone deserves to know, my brother Corey passed away last night in a car accident with his drunk friend driving."
He continued, "This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do I don't how I'm suppose to do this without you i miss you so much already this isn't fair thank you for always being the best big brother i could ask for i love you so f--king much life's never gonna be the same without you R.I.P."
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department was unable to reveal the identities of the deceased and the driver, but confirmed that "a McLaren hit a street sign before crashing into a tree in the Valley Village neighborhood" on Sunday night. They stated the passenger has since died and the driver was taken to the hospital in "unknown condition."
Charges have not yet been filed, but TMZ reports that their law enforcement sources anticipate an arrest of the driver, who is reportedly Ink Master star Daniel Silva.
May his soul rest in peace.
