Rest in peace, Lorenzo Brino. 

The actor, known for his role in 7th Heaven, died on Monday, March 9, ET confirms. He was 21. TMZ was first to report the news. 

Lorenzo was killed after losing control of his Toyota Camry and striking a pole, ET has learned. The crash occurred in California's San Bernardino County. Lorenzo was pronounced dead at the scene. 

On 7th Heaven, Lorenzo starred as Sam Camden. He and his brothers, Nikolas, Myrinda and Zachary, were cast on the show when they were just five months old, and shared the roles of twins Sam and David Camden from 1999 to 2001. After that year, only Lorenzo and Nikolas continued to play the roles until 7th Heaven's end in 2007. The family drama was Lorenzo's only acting credit. 

A friend of Lorenzo's shared a touching tribute video to him on YouTube last Thursday. "We were blessed to have Lorenzo Brino’s Beautiful soul in our lives. The amount of people he touched with his character and charm was unbelievable. He was a loyal friend and an amazing brother. He would always get my back no matter what. Rest In Peace Brother ??," the caption reads.
