A famous TikTok star has reportedly died from a horrifying car crash after a wild police chase, confirmed reports.
19-year-old Gabriel Salazar made a huge name for himself in the world of social media, especially through the platform of TikTok. However, the young star’s career was only short-lived after news reports confirmed his tragic death and the bizarre circumstances that surrounded it.
At first, news outlets spoke about how Gabriel died from a car crash. Soon, reports confirmed how there was a fiery police chase that resulted in his vehicle speeding and ultimately overturning, leading to his death.
But now, as investigations into the haunting case continue, more and more people were shocked to learn about the new details emerging from the crash. And that includes how the TikTok star was carrying illegal migrants from the Southern Texas border in his car.
At the time of the fatal crash, cops spoke about how Gabriel was making a speedy run for it as cops chased his vehicle. But soon, the star lost complete control of his vehicle, causing it to overturn and slam into a hill on the opposite side of the road.
The tragic site of the car crash was recently identified as Zavala County, as mentioned in reports. Moreover, that area is known to be just 90 minutes from the Texan border, adding more suspicion as to why he was actually making a run for it from the police.
The Sheriff’s Office in Zavala County spoke about how officers from Homeland Security informed them that three out of the four people that died in the tragic incident were in fact, illegal immigrants. That does not include the driver, who was Gabriel himself.
As the mystery surrounding the case deepens, cops claim they’re still investigating the harrowing incident that has left so many loved ones and followers shattered beyond repair.
