Lorenzo Brino, an actor who acted on the family drama “7th Heaven,” died earlier on Monday, March 9, in a car accident. He was 21.
Brino was driving a 2016 Toyota Camry slightly after 3 a.m. in Yucaipa, California, on Monday when he lost control of the car, noted a press release from the San Bernardino County coroner’s office. He crashed with a utility pole around Yucaipa Boulevard and 16th Street, and he was declared dead at the scene.
The young actor played Sam Camden on “7th Heaven” together with his brother, Nikolas, who played David Camden. Both were the youngest children of Annie and Eric Camden (Catherine Hicks and Stephen Collins) on the series, which aired from 1996 until 2007.
He and his brother first appeared on the family drama starting in the third season, then became featured players in season 5. During the sixth season through the final eleventh, they were credited as cast members. The two real-life brothers were two of a group of quadruplets. Brino acted in a total of 138 episodes.
The investigation into this matter by San Bernardino County sheriff’s department remains ongoing.
