The YouTube community will never be the same again after Corey La Barrie died May 10.
His mom and brother confirmed the incident recently in separate Instagram posts. According to them, Corey was a victim of drunk-driving which happened, unfortunately, on his 25th birthday.
His brother Jarrad La Barrie shared on Monday afternoon through a post what happened. He said he never imagined sitting there and typing for a long time or is it something he wanted to do at the moment but everybody deserves to know that his brother Corey has died in a car accident. His drunken friend was driving when the accident happened.
He went on to say that it is the hardest thing he ever had to do and he doesn’t know how he was supposed to do it without missing his brother so much and unfair it was. He said thank you to Corey for always being the best big brother he could ever ask for. He then said how much he loves him and how life will never be the same without him.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson of the Los Angeles Police Department wasn’t able to reveal the identities of the driver and the deceased. However, they confirmed that a certain McLaren hit a street sign right before crashing into a tree. The incident happened on Sunday night in the Valley Village neighborhood. They added that the passenger died while the driver was rushed to the hospital and was in “unknown condition”.- Advertisement -

Friends and acquaintances of Corey expressed their condolences to his bereaved family on social media. YouTube stars of Reality House also spoke about the privilege of knowing him. Ryan Abe took to Twitter to write a special message talking about their tours and random videos and the late night talks they shared. He added he will never forget Corey and he will always be loved.
