Two Teenage Girls Killed In Fiery Car Crash While Streaming Themselves On Facebook Live

Two teenage girls were streaming themselves on Facebook Live as they drove down a Pennsylvania highway just before being killed in a fiery car 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 lane on Interstate 380 around midnight on Tuesday.

In the video, 19-year-old passenger Chaniya Morrison-Toomey (above, right) can be heard asking, “Are you going live?”

But before Hughes had a chance to reply, lights flashed inside the car followed by the sound of screeching tires — then blackness.

Both teens died after a tractor-trailer plowed into the back of their Suzuki Forenza, which police say Hughes was driving with a spare tire doughnut.

The impact from the crash sent the sedan hurling into the guardrail before it tumbled onto the road and burst into flames.

Both women were burned beyond recognition, and were declared dead at the scene after being extracted from the contorted, charred vehicle (pictured below):

Michael Parks, the driver of the truck, was uninjured and has not been charged with any crime from the fatal collision. Witnesses 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 victims, told local press she had been in the car with them earlier that evening but was dropped off hours earlier at her mother’s Scranton home.

Piasecki said watching the video later that night “broke” her, and caused her to wonder whether she could have done something to prevent the devastating accident. She said of her friends:

“They were both down-to-Earth people. They had good personalities. They had smiles that could light up dark rooms. Anytime you were with them it was always fun.”

Morrison-Toomey worked at a local KFC restaurant, while Hughes was a student at West Scranton High School. Grief counselors came to the school on Tuesday and Wednesday to help students cope.

Our hearts go out to the victim’s families at this tragic time, and we hope everyone stays safe on the roads this winter.
