YouTuber McSkillet among three killed in supercar crash

Eighteen-year-old YouTuber Trevor Heitmann, AKA "McSkillet", caused a massive accident yesterday in San Diego, California when he drove down the wrong side of a freeway and his auto collided with another vehicle, killing two people and injuring one other.

Classmates at La Jolla Country Day School, Heitmann's alma mater, told FOX 5 Friday that they were shocked and saddened to learn about the rumored death of a peer, which was also widely reported in industry publications.

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

Heitmann was banned from trading "skins", used to customise guns and knives in the first-person shooter video gamer Counter Strike Global Offensive, earlier this year, for being involved in a skin gambling website called CS:GO Magic.

Earlier today, reports of a fatal vehicular collision surfaced on various San Diego news outlets, describing the collision of a sports vehicle and an SUV on a highway.

A famous YouTube gamer has been identified as the driver who killed a mother and daughter in a suicide mission.

Witnesses told police the McLaren had been travelling at over 100 miles per hour (160km/h) at the time, and was driving southbound in a northbound lane on the Interstate 805 road.

The crash occurred on a freeway in San Diego shortly after 4:30 pm local time Thursday.

The initial fiery wreck triggered a series of chain-reaction collisions involving at least six other vehicles.

As Dexerto reports, McSkillet made a video past year showing off his new black McLaren. Trevor had a skin estimate that was worth around $100, 000, according to the Mirror, but other sales and the large audience of his YouTube channel, most likely made him much more.

He was driving it in the wrong direction when it hit the SUV on Thursday, killing himself as well as a 43-year-old woman and her 12-year-old daughter.

Prior to the incident, the McLaren supercar was seen crashing into the gates at Ashley Falls Elementary School, and drove recklessly through the campus, endangering students. At the time of his death, he hadn't uploaded a new video for nearly six months.
