YouTube gamer kills himself, a mother and daughter in high-speed 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.

Witnesses told police that about a half an hour earlier the black McLaren smashed through a fence at a local elementary school and drove away at high speed.

Trevor Heitmann, 18, was behind the wheel of the McLaren supercar during the collision near San Diego, according to ABC news and other news reports, citing California police.

According to KSWB, Heitmann rose to prominence as a "skins trader" in the video game "Counter Strike: Global Offensive".

The Medical Examiner's Office confirmed the ages of the other two victims, both of whom were from San Diego, on Friday.

The fiery crash happened on the I-805 HOV in San Diego, Calif., on Thursday.

A GoFundMe setup to raise money for the family of a mother and daughter who were killed in a collision with CS:GO YouTuber McSkillet has raised over five times its original goal.

Heitmann's YouTube account has more than 877,000 subscribers.

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. In December 2017, he uploaded a video about his vehicle, a black McLaren 650S which he said "beats just about every other super auto in a drag race".

One other person was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries.

In a statement, Ashley Falls School said that on Thursday afternoon "a auto drove through the side gate and an individual got out of the vehicle and threw an item at a door, breaking a window". 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.
