My heart breaks right now, on my sons 25 birthday today he got into a car with a drunk driver. The accident killed him instantly. No words can describe the sadness I feel in loosening a child. It just feels so unreal and I’m overwhelmed with grief. I love you so much Corey and will miss you so so much. It’s just so unfair
Meanwhile, based on a press release by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Silva could possibly face a maximum of 15 years in prison or life in state prison if he’s convicted. So far, no arraignment date has been set. The LAPD arrested Silva on May 11 and during that time he was charged and booked in line with the car crash.
At present, the case is still under investigation though police revealed in their original report that Silva was driving the 2020 McLaren 600LT with La Barrie as his passenger. Silva got out of the vehicle upon impact and tried to escape the scene but bystanders stopped him from fleeing.
According to the officials of the Los Angeles County Sheriff, he is being held on bail amounting to $2 million.
Based on LAPD spokesman Officer Tony Im, they ran into a stop sign before crashing into a tree. He added that the driver was arrested for a crime and investigation is still in the process.
The crash happened on La Barrie’s 25th birthday. He was immediately taken to a hospital but was pronounced dead. Further, the police said they weren’t able to take a sobriety test on the driver because he was also injured and was rushed to the hospital.- Advertisement -
