Trevor Heitmann, 18, was behind the wheel of a $200,000 McLaren sports vehicle that barreled down Interstate 805 going more than 100 miles per hour on the wrong side of the road.
THE reckless driver in a luxury sports vehicle who caused a fiery crash, killing a 43-year-old woman and her 12-year-old daughter, has been identified as a popular YouTube personality.
Heitmann was known online as "the King of Skins" for designing and selling custom content, or skins, for the first-person shooter game Counter Strike: Global Offensive. The San Diego Medical Examiner confirmed Heitmann died due to "blunt force trauma". At the time of his death, he hadn't uploaded a new video for nearly six months. The McSkillet YouTube channel amassed 877k subscribers over the course of its four-year existence, leading to it being widely considered one of the most popular of its genre.
"People were running around ... and someone was on the ground", motorist Mariwan Hama told The Los Angeles Times. "Unconditional support." Pizarro's boyfriend called her "an incredibly bright and attractive person" who could "raise three kids and put herself through school to get her masters-by herself-just to give them the best she can give them".
