Awoke this morning to hear about the tragic passing of Los Angeles’ 24 year old Phillip “PHiZZURP” Klemenov. The American competitive Call of Duty player and YouTube sensation passed away after losing control of the car he was driving.
Car Accident Kills Phillip “PhiZZURP” Klemenov
Passengers included his best friend, another gamer who also lost his life, and his girlfriend Adriana who survived the accident. No formal word on what caused the accident as of yet, but rumor has it he was driving while intoxicated. If this is the case, he was responsible for the death of his friend, making the unfortunate event that much more devastating.
It was girlfriend Adrina Lemus’ tragically tearful video that broke the news to many of his fans:
