In tragic news, popular YouTuber Corey La Barrie has died after being involved in a car crash on his 25th birthday.
According to a report by TMZ, the YouTuber had been in a car with Ink Masters‘ Daniel Silva and they crashed.
The reality TV tattoo star, who was reportedly the driver, lost control of the McLaren he was driving and crashed into a stop sign and tree in the Los Angeles neighbourhood of Valley Village on the evening of Sunday, May 10.
A press release from the LAPD states Silva then exited the vehicle and attempted to flee the scene, but was "stopped by citizens who came to render aid."
