On August 7, Ryan Fellows was engaged in an automobile accident. He was driving a gold Nissan 240 when it overturned and caught fire. When the tragedy occurred, Fellows was shooting Street Outlaws: Fastest in America. Everyone on the scene raced to rescue him, but they were unable to save him. Following his passing, a GoFundMe campaign was set up, with the following message:
“Ryan was a passionate automobile enthusiast and a road ‘fighter’ in many respects, with interests in basketball, cars, and business in sales/advertising.” He was recognized for his perseverance and unwavering will to conquer the obstacles in his path.”
Fellows loved his family more than his accomplishments, according to the website. It further said that the family members now need support in moving on with their lives after this tragic loss. The page’s goal is to raise $50,000 and has so far raised roughly $4000. Donors also expressed their sorrow, saying they adored him and thought he was one of the most down-to-earth people they had ever met.
There is presently very little information known about Fellows. Despite his performances in Street Outlaws: Fastest in America, he only became popular on the internet after his death. In a video from the program in 2021, he described himself as a major drag racing enthusiast while driving a 2016 Lamborghini Huracan. Ryan’s automobile was on the verge of crashing, but he recovered in time. The race also highlighted the dangers of his trade.
Two other racers from the program, Jonathan ‘JJ Da Boss’ and his wife Tricia Day, were almost murdered in an accident before his death. The tragedy occurred in January 2022, and their injuries were not disclosed until they resumed walking in March. It was subsequently revealed that Tricia had to have hip surgery, and Jonathan got burns on his hands and face.
