Teen driver and friend die in fatal crash while Facebook Live streaming


A teenage driver broadcast her and her friend's death in a horrific fatal crash on Facebook live.
Brooke Miranda Hughes, 18(left), and her friend Chaniya Morrison-Toomey, 19(right), were  driving along Interstate 380 near Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania, USA, shortly after midnight Tuesday.

 Hughe who was driving held her cellphone up as the feed connected live to her Facebook friends and her friend Morrison-Toomey asked: “Are you going live?”


Before she could answer, lights suddenly flashed inside the car followed by the sounds of screeching tires before the film went black for seven minutes and the phone is picked up by someone attending the crash, The Times Tribune reports.


A tractor-trailer plowed into the back of their car.The teens, who were declared dead at the scene, were thought to have been traveling very slowly in the right lane when the smash occurred, according to police.
The video was viewed more than 7,000 times after being posted to Hughes’ profile page, but not by her
