The driver in a horrific wrong way accident that killed three people in California on Thursday has been identified as a popular YouTuber.
The teen was behind the wheel of a 2014 McLaren that was traveling south in the carpool lane of the northbound 805 around 4:35 p.m. when his vehicle slammed head-on into an SUV, authorities said.
While news of a crash in San Diego has been confirmed, it is still not clear if McSkillet was involved.
Three people have died after a popular YouTube gamer sped into oncoming traffic and hit a family auto head-on - killing a mum and her 12-year-old daughter.
The Union-Tribune identified the victims in the SUV as mother and daughter.
As Dexerto reports, McSkillet made a video previous year showing off his new black McLaren.
The initial fiery wreck triggered a series of chain-reaction collisions involving at least six other vehicles. "And then at the same time I would have a minute of clarity and I would sit back and say I'm so happy that both went, not one, not the other, not a coma or anything that would have been so hard for them to handle".
The northbound freeway was shut down for several hours, bringing the evening rush-hour commute to a halt.
That channel has 900,000 subscribers, which authorities say has drawn lots of interest to the case. Officer Jake Sanchez, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol, said he believes that Trevor's auto smashed through a gate at an elementary school earlier on the same day of the crash before also breaking a school window.
Following the ban he had not uploaded a YouTube video in over five months, and reports suggest that his income had been hit.
