Silva had to be stopped from leaving the crash site, authorities alleged.
"The driver of the McLaren exited the vehicle and attempted to leave the scene but was stopped by citizens who came to render aid," the LAPD said. "No other vehicles were involved in the collision."
Silva was injured and photographed at the scene being transported via stretcher to an ambulance by the Los Angeles Daily News. It is not clear what injuries he sustained at this time.
La Barrie, who was celebrating his 25th birthday, had been riding in the passenger seat, TMZ reported. He was transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the police said.
Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Silva is most known for appearing on season 10 of Ink Masters, a competition series for tattoo artists. Silva also has a YouTube page where he shows off his ink work.
Prior to his death, La Barrie, who had over 330,000 subscribers on YouTube and over 200,000 followers on Instagram, was celebrating his birthday while listening to 2 Chainz "Birthday Song" and drinking champagne, as seen in a series of Instagram Stories.
