Witnesses claim they had been drinking at the party before the accident.

La Barrie, 25, mentioned in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel on May 9 that he and friends were planning on a live stream via Twitch and mentioned, “we might get a little bit drunk” in light of his birthday celebration. La Barrie was pronounced dead at the hospital after he and Silva were transported in for a consultation.
