In a rather unfortunate incident, Frank Ocean’s younger brother, Ryan Breaux, died after slamming into a tree, amid a fiery car collision.
The car crash took place in California, during the early hours of Sunday.
According to reports by ABC 7, the accident was a single-car crash that occurred around 1:30 am, at Thousand Oaks in California.
Until now, no single authority or agency identified the victims of the crash. However, influencer B Scott did report that the persons involved were in fact Frank Ocean’s younger sibling, Breaux, and his friend, Zeek.
After the horrifying news broke out, friends and loved ones began leaving heartfelt condolences across Breaux’s last message on his social media account.
Reports from the initial investigation claim that the car they were traveling in had actually gone off track while colliding with a center median tree. And that generated enough force, ripping the car into half, as mentioned by ABC 7.
After a number of seconds, the car ignited with giant fumes of smoke as sheriff deputies from the Ventura County department arrived on the scene.
Soon, Ventura’s Fire Department authorities announced that both the driver and the passenger died as they investigated the event.
The exact cause of the crash is still under investigation as authorities continue to look for clues.
Further speculations arose as Wendell Campbell, a deputy at the Ventura County sheriff department, claimed how speed could have caused the incident.
Campbell spoke to KTLA, explaining how the state’s speed limit ‘is north of 45mph.’ And that was in reference to the exact location of the crash site. He went on stating how the accident took place upon a ‘giant road stretch, and that’s where people tend to pick up speed.’
18 year old’s Breaux’s final tweet was posted just two days back. It read as ‘only taking part in entanglements in the year 2020.’
