Frank Ocean loses younger brother in a California car crash

Musician and producer Frank Ocean’s younger brother, Ryan Breaux, is reported to have died in a car crash in California early Sunday.

According to a report by Daily Mail, two people died in a single-car collision in Thousand Oaks, California, just about 1.30am, according to ABC 7.

Although neither the news network nor authorities have named the people who died, influencer B Scott reported that the victims were Ocean’s 18-year-old brother, Breaux, and Breaux’s friend, Zeek. 

Friends have been leaving messages of condolences on Breaux’s last social media posts as well as posting remembrances on their own accounts.

According to the initial investigation, the car they were traveling in appeared to have gone off the road and then collided with a tree in the center median, striking it with enough force to rip the car in half, ABC 7 said.

The car was in flames when Ventura County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the scene.

The Ventura County Fire Department pronounced both people inside the car dead at the scene.

Authorities are still investigating the cause of the crash.
