Lorenzo Brino, ‘7th Heaven’ Child Star, Dies In Car Accident At 21
7th Heaven child star Lorenzo Brino, 21, died last week after he lost control of his 2016 Toyota Camry and hit a pole.
The accident was reported at 3 a.m. in San Bernardino County, California. Brino was the only occupant in the vehicle at the time of the crash, and was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash is still under investigation according to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department.
Brino is part of a set of quadruplets that first appeared on 7th Heaven on a rotating basis as twin infants born to the character Annie Camden in 1999. They were on the show until 2007, when it ended. All four of the quadruplets played the twins, until 2001 when Lorenzo and his brother Nikolas took over full time.
He is remembered by his parents Tony and Shawna, his older brother Antonio, and the other members of the quadruplets: Nikolas, Zachary, and Myrinda “Mimi.”
Mimi posted to Instagram to remember her brother:

To my amazing and crazy brother. You might be gone but it’s true when people say “gone but never forgotten”. Saying that you were a blessing is an understatement. You brought light to so many lives and you did so much with the too short of a life that you had. I had the privilege of growing up side by side with you for an absolutely wild 21 years. Believe me when I say that you drove me so insane at times, but you were also a part of some of my most cherished memories. I am so so happy to know that I was beyond loved by you and that I forever have a guardian angel by my side. Rest In Peace Lorenzo, I love you now and I’ll love you forever. ❤️
“I had the privilege of growing up side by side with you for an absolutely wild 21 years. Believe me when I say that you drove me so insane at times, but you were also a part of some of my most cherished memories,” she wrote in the caption of a picture with her brother.
“To my dear sweet nephew, your loss left a hole in my heart. God needed another Angel and he took you. Please watch over your mom and dad. You sister Mimi, brothers, Antonio, Zachary and Nicholas … You got a big job up there,” said Lorenzo’s aunt, Janet Brino, in a statement to TMZ.
“My heart is broken for his family! So many fun memories watching them grow up! Just devastating! RIP Zo!! You were full of light and will not be forgotten!” wrote his 7th Heaven co-star Beverly Mitchell in a comment on E! News’ Instagram.
Lorenzo’s friend Stephen Dulay even posted a YouTube video dedicated to him.
