According to a GoFundMe website, the Discovery series’ 41-year-old star is an “avid automobile fanatic” and “the heart and soul” of his family.

Driver Ryan Fellows of Street Outlaws: Fastest in America perished tragically in a car accident. He was 41.

The official Twitter account for the Discovery series confirmed the awful news on Monday, adding in a post, “The Street Outlaws family is grieved by the tragedy that tragically resulted in the loss of Ryan Fellows.

The message read, “We send our sincere condolences to Ryan’s loved ones as they process this unexpected and tragic loss.

According to TMZ, which was the first to report the story, the accident happened early on Sunday morning outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, while Fellows was participating in a race that would be included in an episode that would show later that day.

He apparently lost control of his gold Nissan 240Z, which near the finish line flipped over and caught fire. Despite the efforts of witnesses to assist, they were ultimately unable to get him out of the car in time, the source stated.

Our request for a response from representatives at Discovery was not immediately answered.

An online fundraising campaign was started on Sunday to support the driver’s family, which consists of his wife Liz, their son Josiah, 18, and their daughter Olivia, 10.

“Ryan loved basketball, cars, and the business side of sales and advertising. He was also a devoted car enthusiast and road warrior in many other ways.

He was admired for his determination and never-ending drive to succeed in spite of obstacles. These endeavors and successes were only surpassed by his love for his family “It says on the page.

With more than $8,900 raised in just one day, the GoFundMe continues, “The family will need aid with the next stages of mourning and living life after losing the heart and soul of their lovely family.”

Eight street racing teams from throughout the nation compete in Street Outlaws: Fastest in America, which premiered on Discovery in 2020. The winners take home $100,000 and the title of “Fastest in America.”

The Street Outlaws cast has lost cast members before, including Fellows.

At the age of 39, Christopher “Kentucky” Ellis was discovered dead in his house in September 2020. According to a police incident report obtained by PEOPLE, Ellis’ body was discovered next to a bottle of alcohol and a needle that had “a little amount of dark liquid inside it consistent with heroin” when it was discovered.

Ellis debuted as a cast member on Street Outlaws‘ first season and appeared on the show up to 2018 as a mechanic.

The Street Outlaws actor JJ Da Boss and his wife Tricia were also involved in a collision earlier this year when the show was being filmed. According to TMZ, Tricia was apparently hurt and then taken to the hospital.
