    Potter, 40, was driving southbound on I-25 near mile 267.5 at 9:19 a.m. when his silver Toyota 4Runner drove off the right shoulder, crossed the frontage road and rolled several times, according to the Colorado State Patrol. He died at the scene.

    Potter was wearing a seatbelt and was the only person in the vehicle, CSP said in a news release Tuesday. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

    Investigators do not believe drugs, alcohol or excessive speed were factors in the crash, according to the agency.

    Potter’s wife, Nathalie Potter, described him as supportive, loving, genuine and a good listener in a post on social media site X.

    “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 Potter wrote.

    Comicstorian has amassed more than 3 million subscribers and published nearly 4,000 videos since Potter started posting 10 years ago, according to the channel’s YouTube page.

    Potter’s love of exciting stories and well-written characters sparked his YouTube career, she wrote, and the Comicstorian team intends to keep going “to honor him by continuing to tell great stories by great people, as well as to keep the memory of our very own superhero alive.”
