It is truly sad to report on topics like this, but YouTuber Corey La Barrie has passed away on his birthday and it was a result of a drinking and driving incident.
“Ink Master” Star Daniel Silva is reported to be potentially booked for murder charges after a fatal car crash that killed YouTuber Corey La Barrie. It happened to be Corey’s birthday and the two of them were on their way home from a party around 9PM Sunday night.
When the incident occurred, law enforcement showed up to a Mclaren sports car crashed into a street sign and a tree where the passenger took most of the force from the crash.
The driver, alleged to be Silva, did not suffer life-threatening injuries from the crash but La Barrie unfortunately did. Reports say that Silva suffered a broken hip while La Barrie was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead. Sources are reporting that Silva may be booked for murder due to the incident. Not a whole lot of information is available at this time but what we do know is that the two were traveling at a high speed before the crash. Silva was seen drinking earlier in the night but it has not been determined the result of the crash.
