A life cut too short.
Corey La Barrie, a popular YouTube personality, died on Sunday after he was involved in a car crash. He passed away on his 25th birthday.
Per TMZ, Ink Master star Daniel Silva was driving the vehicle and is set to be arrested for the murder of La Barrie. Los Angeles authorities were called to the accident scene in Valley Village, California on Sunday night, and the two men were transported to a hospital where Corey was pronounced dead.
Silva was allegedly behind the wheel of the McLaren sports car with La Barrie in the passenger seat when the car crashed into a street sign and tree. It is unclear who the car belonged to. Silva did not suffer any life-threatening injuries due to the crash and is currently receiving treatment in the hospital for a broken hip.
Additional details of the tragic accident are unclear at this time, but TMZ reports that birthday party witnesses claim Silva was drinking that evening prior to getting behind the wheel. It is suspected the two were driving at a high speed.
La Barrie’s mother Lissa Harrison confirmed her son’s passing on Instagram, writing (below) a heartfelt message along with a photo (above) of Corey:
