Potter was reportedly the only occupant in his vehicle and had his seatbelt on at the time of the crash. He succumbed to his injuries and died at the scene, the Colorado State Patrol added. The incident is said to still be under investigation with no impairment or excessive speed suspected at this time.

The internet personality’s wife, Nathalie, first attributed his death to an “unfortunate accident,” sharing in a lengthy message on Potter’s official social media how his legacy will continue living on through his acclaimed work.

Potter’s YouTube channel boasts more than 3 million subscribers and features audio dramas of comic books and analyses of various properties throughout the Marvel and DC universes.

“To many of you, he was Comicstorian, voicing stories from across multiple different mediums. To his loved ones, he was one of the best and most supportive individuals anyone could ask for,” Natalie wrote in part.

“Ben was loving and genuine. He was someone who would listen and make time for his loved ones,” she continued. “He would do his best to make everyone laugh and make sure they were okay. He was our rock and he’d reassure his loved ones whenever they needed it.”
