A man mistakenly killed himself and eight other members of his family in a horrific car crash as he was livestreaming while driving.
The van, which carried nine members of the same family, collided with an oncoming truck on a highway about 60 kilometers from Budapest in Hungary. Everyone on board was killed instantly.
The van’s driver, a 38 years old male, was streaming the ride live on Facebook and wasn’t paying attention to the road in front of him. Towards the end of the video, the van is seen driving at top speed straight into the path of an oncoming truck.
The video ends with the camera falling after the car and the truck collided. No one survived.
Reports say that “Police named driver as 38-year-old ‘Peter K,’ a Romania native. The driver was not licensed to carry passengers, and the minibus he was driving had been detained for almost two months by police officers prior to the incident, according to Romanian broadcaster Digi 24.”
The report also states that “the accident left 16 children orphaned — village authority said it was looking for a solution for the children’s care. Hungary’s Number 4 motorway, which connects Budapest to the East, is known for being dangerous — famous Hungarian actor István Bubik died on the stretch.”
