YouTube Star McSkillet Dies in Wrong-Way Car Crash, Killing Two Others

Two other people in the Hyundai - a 43-year-old mother and her 12-year-old daughter - were killed. 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.

Quoting the California Highway Patrol, they reported: "A$3 man was driving southbound on the northbound I-805 HOV lane in excess of 100 miles per hour when he crashed around 4:30 p.m., causing the fiery pileup.The McLaren crashed head-on into an SUV, which was driving at highway speeds, killing the sports vehicle driver along with the driver and passenger of the SUV".

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

According to The Los Angeles Times, the fatal crash occurred northbound on Interstate 805 in San Diego County, California.

Another person was injured in the collision and taken to hospital where they are expected to survive.

The 18-year-old rose to prominence in the online community surrounding the popular video game Counter Strike: Global Offensive. His last video appeared to have been posted some five months ago.

McSkillet Trevor Heitmann

The YouTuber, who had more than 800,000 subscribers and often did giveaways on his channel, never revealed his real name or his face online.

It is not clear why Trevor Heitmann roared down a San Diego highway in the wrong direction as his odometer approached what was likely triple digits.

Trevor "McSkillet" Heitmann posted video of his 2014 McLaren sports auto in December.

Reports say Heitmann was given a trade ban by the game's owner Valve earlier this year over a crack-down on gambling involving custom content, which froze him out of account and cut his income.

It all began on Thursday afternoon when he reportedly rammed through a gate at the land of Ashley Falls Elementary School of northern San Diego before fleeing the scene, according to NBC 7 San Diego. He tells Fox 5: "Best little sister a brother could ask for".

Several students reported that the driver of that vehicle had driven through a fence and then broken a window while no classes were in session.
