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.

Another driver and her 12-year-old daughter were also killed in the wreck.

Trevor Heitmann, best known as OG McSkillet, has been identified as the driver of the McLaren 650S sports auto that ploughed into Aileen Pizarro, 43, and her daughter Aryana's Hyundai SUV.

While news of a crash in San Diego has been confirmed, it is still not clear if McSkillet was involved. Eyewitness told police that the McLaren was speeding down the opposite lane of the highway, Telegraph reports.

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

Heitmann is popular on YouTube, and has close to 900,000 subscribers on his channel.

Eighteen-year-old Heitmann made a fortune selling digital "skins" which are used to change the appearance of guns and knives in the video game Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). His last video appeared to have been posted some five months ago. Trevor Heitmann, 18, was apparently in a troubled state when he drove his sports vehicle south on the northbound I-805 and killed Aileen Pizarro, 43, and Aryana, 12, per NBC San Diego and the San Diego Tribune. One other person was hospitalized with serious injuries, but is expected to survive. Known online as "McSkillet", Heitmann had gotten rich on video gaming but lost access to some income when a publisher banned him from the practice of "skin gambling", the Wrap explains.

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. In a statement issued to CNN, Ashley Falls School "a vehicle drove through the side gate and an individual got out of the auto and threw an item at a door, breaking a window".

Mrs Pizarro was a marriage and family counsellor and Aryana was due to start seventh grade on Monday, Dominic told the San Diego Union Tribune.
