TikTok star Gabriel Salazar has been killed along with three others in a fiery crash after a high speed chase with Texas police.
The 19-year-old was reportedly involved in a police pursuit on Sunday morning when he lost control of a white Chevy Camaro, flipping it and smashing into several trees, resulting in a deadly fireball.
According to Zavala County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy overheard a Crystal City Police Department officer initiate a traffic stop on US Highway 83; the officer advised he was in an active pursuit traveling north towards La Pryor.
The deputy assisted in deploying a tire deflation device, “but was unsuccessful,” the Sheriff’s Office said. The deputy stated “he later heard CCPD officer advise that the vehicle had rolled over and that it was fully engulfed in flames.”
All four occupants died at the scene.
