Last Thursday, a horrible crash took place in California. Now, the driver who was responsible for the crash has been identified. 18-year-old Trevor Heitmann, a famous YouTuber, drove the wrong way on a freeway that resulted in a fatal crash.

Sadly, three people were killed in the crash. Heitmann was driving a $200,000 McLaren sports car at the time of the incident and began driving at a high speed, reported as over 100mph, on the wrong side of the road.

The crash resulted in the deaths of the social media star, a 43-year-old woman, and a 12-year-old girl. Sadly, investigators have revealed that the 18-year-old boy may have been struggling with severe depression at the time of the crash.

According to ABC, the young man typically uses the name “McSkillet” for his popular YouTube channel. With it, he usually would discuss video games.

Initial reports from investigators are claiming that this was an act of suicide. Sadly, the accident not only killed Heitmann, but a mother and daughter as well.

Please be praying for the family of the mother and daughter who were killed and also for Heitmann's family. This news is absolutely heartbreaking. Share your prayers here! In other recent news, everyone is being warned about a new deadly bug in the U.S. spreading a lethal infection around 28 states.
