A man who was known for his appearances on an MTV reality show and who was married to a former Disney actress was killed early today in a traffic collision. TMZ.com reports that Chris Carney and another man, Ezekiel Blanton, were pronounced dead at the scene of the single-car crash in Arkansas.
Blanton reportedly had been driving the car, which “flew off the road while going around a bend and slammed into a tree,” TMZ reported. At least one of the two occupants of the car was ejected.
Carney was featured on the MTV reality show “twentyfourseven,” which followed efforts by Carney and his younger brother to make it in the entertainment world.
Thornton is known for her co-starring role as Tawni Hart on Disney Channel’s “Sonny With a Chance.” The couple married in 2011 and had two children.
