McSkillet car crash

While news of a crash in the San Diego have been confirmed, it is still not clear if McSkillet was involved, however, Twitter users claiming to be friends with McSkillet have been tweeting about his death.

Trevor Heitmann, an 18-year-old YouTube gamer, shocked everyone when he killed himself and an innocent mother and daughter on August 23 after speeding in the wrong direction on Interstate 805 in San Diego and ultimately crashing his $200k sports auto.

A famous YouTube gamer has been identified as the driver who killed a mother and daughter in a suicide mission. Heitmann's McLaren was traveling at nearly 100 miles per hour as he drove south on a northbound carpool lane on the I-805 highway.

Heitmann was killed in the fiery high-speed wreck that left his vehicle "fragmented and. strewn across" the 805 Freeway in the University City area Thursday afternoon, the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office said.

The crash also killed two in the SUV, a 12-year-old girl and a 43-year-old woman, reports say.

Police said the auto was travelling at a very high speed, and witnesses said the vehicles exploded into flames when they crashed.

One person was taken to a hospital for treatment of serious but non- life-threatening trauma, CHP public affairs Officer Jake Sanchez said.

The entire northbound side of the motorway was closed for about six hours.

On his YouTube channel, where he had 877,000 subscribers, McSkillet mostly posted gaming-related videos.

California Highway Patrol said Heitmann was involved in two other road incidents before the crash.

In December, he posted a video showing his McLaren 650S, a high-powered supercar purchased with his earnings from YouTube and through the CS:GO skins market.

Witnesses say the driver then got out of the vehicle, smashed a window at the school, before driving off again.
