Two teenage daughters were streaming themselves on Facebook as they drove down a Pennsylvania highway just before being killed in a fiery vehicle crash.
According to reports, 18 -year-old Brooke Hughes ( above, left) was broadcasting a live video on Facebook while driving very slowly in the right trail on Interstate 380 around midnight on Tuesday.
In the video, 19 -year-old fare Chaniya Morrison-Toomey ( above, right) can be heard expecting, “Are you going live? “
But before Hughes had a chance to reply, illuminations flashed inside the car followed by the music of creaking tires — then blackness.
Both teenages expired after a tractor-trailer plowed into the back of their Suzuki Forenza, which patrol reply Hughes was driving with a spare tire doughnut.
The impact from the gate-crash sent the sedan hurling into the guardrail before it tumbled onto the road and burst into flames.
Michael Parks , the move of the truck, was uninjured and has not been charged with any violation from the lethal crash. Evidences told police there may have been something wrong with Hughes’ tail lights.
The video documenting the crash has been removed from Hughes’ Facebook page, but state officials say they plan to use the footage in their investigation.
17-year-old Samantha Piasecki , who was friends with both scapegoats, told local press she had been in the car with them earlier that evening but was put off hours earlier at her mother’s Scranton home.
Piasecki alleged watching the video eventually that night “broke” her, and induced her to wonder whether she could have done something to prevent the destroying accident. She mentioned of her friends 😛 TAGEND
“They were both down-to-Earth beings. They had good personalities. They had smiles that could light up light areas. Anytime you were with them it was always fun.”
Morrison-Toomey ran at a neighbourhood KFC restaurant, while Hughes was a student at West Scranton High School. Grief advisers came to the school on Tuesday and Wednesday to facilitate students cope.
Our hearts go out to the victim’s families at this tragic day, and we hope everyone stays safe on the roads this winter.
