Frank Ocean’s younger brother, Ryan Breaux has reportedly died following a car crash.

According to ABC News, though the names of the victims haven’t been released (they won’t be released until families are notified) the single-vehicle collision led to a fiery crash. The incident took place just after 1:30 a.m. in Thousand Oaks, California near West Lake Boulevard. Initially, the investigation noted the vehicle was traveling south when the car reportedly left the roadway and collided with a tree in a center median. 

Due to the force of the crash, the car ripped in half and was found by Ventura County sheriff’s deputies engulfed in flames. Both occupants, including Breaux and his classmate Ezekiel “Zeek” Bishop, were pronounced dead at the scene, per a New York Post report.
