YouTube star Corey La Barrie was tragically killed in a car crash on his 25th birthday this past Sunday—and now, Ink Master star Daniel Silva has been arrested for murder in connection to his death.
According to People, the LAPD announced the arrest on Monday, stating, “The Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division announce the arrest of Daniel Joseph Silva, a 27-year-old driver and resident of Los Angeles, for murder.”
Both parties were transported to a local hospital. But, the release continues saying the 25-year old male passenger “succumbed to his injuries.”
Silva was allegedly the driver of the vehicle with La Barrie being his passenger.Both were believed to have been drinking.
According to arrest reports gained by ET, Silva is currently being held at the LAPD Valley Jail in Van Nuys on a $200,000 bail.
According to the statement, Silva “lost control” of his car while driving at a “high rate of speed” and then “ran off the road and collided with a stop sign.” Per the LAPD:
“The driver of the McLaren exited the vehicle and attempted to leave the scene but was stopped by citizens who came to render aid. No other vehicles were involved in the collision.”
As TMZ originally reported, Corey was a passenger in the car and tragically didn’t survive the crash. His brother, Jarrad, confirmed the awful news on Instagram, writing in part, “This isn’t something I thought I would ever have to sit here and type out for a very long time or what I wanna do right now but everyone deserves to know, my brother Corey passed away last night in a car accident with his drunk friend driving.”
