YouTube star Corey La Barrie died on his 25th birthday in a car crash in Los Angeles on last Sunday. Corey’s brother Jarrad took to Instagram to share the news and said that it is the most difficult thing he has to ever do. He said he didn’t want to sit and type this message but everyone needs to know that his brother lost his life in a car accident because a drunk friend was driving the car.
Police arrested celebrity tattoo artist and Corey’s friend Daniel Joseph Silva on suspicion of murder, Monday evening. It is being stated that the accident happened as Silva was driving fast in a 2020 McLaren 600LT about 9:40 p.m. He lost control of the vehicle which then ran off the road and hit a stop sign and a tree at the corner of Huston Street and Carpenter Avenue in Valley Village. Silva then tried to flee the point of accident but was caught by the people nearby who had stopped to help.
Till Monday the police department didn’t name the victim as they were waiting to notify the relatives first of this accident news. They only said that a 25 years old man who was sitting on the passenger seat has died at a hospital. Now fans have started pouring in tributes in the comment section of Jarrad’s Instagram post.
