CS:GO YouTuber killed while driving 100mph against traffic

Eighteen-year-old Trevor Heitmann, known as "McSkillet" on YouTube, was driving a black McLaren 650S on Interstate 805 the wrong way when the auto struck an SUV, according to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), police told local media.

The collision happened in San Diego on Thursday just after 4.30pm where the 18-year-old internet personality lived.

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.

About 30 minutes prior to the fatal crash on I-805 HOV, Trevor Heitmann was also allegedly spotted driving his vehicle through the gates of Ashley Falls Elementary School in San Diego. The SUV burst into flames, and both occupants - a 43-year-old woman and a 12-year-old girl - were later found dead inside, according to the medical examiner's office.

What is known is this: Heitmann smashed his McLaren sports auto into another vehicle Thursday afternoon, killing a woman and her 12-year-old daughter. He also had a YouTube channel with almost 900,000 subscribers, according to the station.

Officials say they are investigating the crash.

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

In December, he posted a video showing his McLaren 650S, a high-powered supercar purchased with his earnings from YouTube and through the CS:GO skins market.

Following the ban he had not uploaded a YouTube video in over five months, and reports suggest that his income had been hit.

Students told KSWB Heitmann was known to drive the luxury English sports vehicle.

Around 30 minutes before the crash, a motorist smashed through a gate at Ashley Falls Elementary School in the Carmel Valley area before speeding off, according to San Diego police. In a statement issued to CNN, Ashley Falls School "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 had a popular YouTube channel where he mostly discussed video games under the name "McSkillet".
