YouTube personality Ben Potter’s cause of death has been revealed.

The Colorado State Patrol confirmed on Wednesday, June 12, that Ben Potter, best known as Comicstorian, died in a single-vehicle car crash on Saturday, June 8. Potter was driving near Fort Collins in a silver Toyota 4Runner when his vehicle veered off the right shoulder, crossed over a frontage road, and rolled multiple times.

A police statement provided to Us Weekly noted that Potter was wearing his seatbelt but “succumbed to injuries from the crash while at the scene.” The Larimer County Coroner’s Office verified that his death was caused by “blunt force injuries of the head.”

Potter, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, was 40 years old. No other vehicles were involved in the incident. While the investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing, there are “no indications that impairment or excessive speed was involved.”

Ben’s wife, Nathalie Potter, shared the heartbreaking news on her husband’s X account on Monday, June 10.

“My husband, Ben Potter, passed away in an unfortunate accident,” Nathalie wrote. “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. As a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, or even just a stranger, Ben was loving and genuine.”

She continued, “He was someone who would listen and make time for his loved ones. 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.”

Nathalie added that Ben was “my world” and requested privacy from Ben’s fans as she grieved and preserved “everything he’s built.”

In an effort to “keep the memory of our very own superhero alive,” Nathalie and Ben’s team plan to continue his YouTube channel, which has over 3 million followers.

“We supported each other on everything we wanted to do and I’m not about to stop now,” Nathalie wrote.

Ben’s death has sparked several online tributes, including one from Straight Outta Compton’s O’Shea Jackson Jr.

“Rest in Peace to Comicstorian. I’m heartbroken to hear this news. One of my favorite follows on YouTube, thank you so much for your work man I was a huge fan,” Jackson Jr., 33 — the oldest son of iconic rapper Ice Cube — shared via X on Monday. “Prayers to his loved ones. Long live Ben Potter.”
