The untimely tragic death of Comicstorian Ben Potter left the netizens in shock! His wife announced the news on his channel and mentioned the cause of death as “an unfortunate accident.” Two days after the announcement, the details of his death have been uncovered. 


What caused Comicstorian’s sudden demise?

The Colorado State Patrol revealed in a statement shared with Entertainment Weekly that Potter got killed in a single-vehicle car crash on Saturday, June 8. “The Windsor resident was southbound on I-25 at milepost 267.5 when his silver Toyota 4Runner traveled off the right shoulder of the interstate,” the statement explained. 

When Potter continued to cross over the road paralleling the interstate, he collided, and his vehicle “rolled multiple times.”
