A popular Ghanaian YouTuber is said to have died after his car collided with a tree in Dorset, England, on Sunday, October 31.
According to the Dorset Echo and the Evening Standard, Douglas Tandoh, 26, died on Sunday morning after a car in which he was a passenger went off the road near Dorset’s Monkton Wyld neighbourhood and crashed into a tree.
Dorset Police confirmed to Insider that he died at the scene, according to a press release issued on Sunday.
Tandoh was a YouTuber who created comedy videos for an audience of over 100,000 subscribers on the channel “DLuxx.” He was best known for reaction videos in which he listened to music from various countries for the first time. His channel, which he launched in 2017, has over 17 million views. His most recent video was posted in April of this year.
The tree that Tandoh’s car collided with had been toppled by a storm, according to the Evening Standard.
According to a police press release, another man in the vehicle was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A request for comment was not returned by that hospital.
According to the Dorset Echo, Tandoh emigrated from Ghana to the United Kingdom with his three brothers in 2010.
Samuel Tandoh, one of Tandoh’s brothers, reportedly told MyLondon that the loss has been “terrible” and that he and Douglas “live together, do everything together, we’ve always looked out for each other.”
“My father is still in pain, but he is doing his best,” Samuel told MyLondon. “My mother isn’t taking it easy; she cries every night and doesn’t sleep.”
