A spokesperson for California Highway Patrol said: "At this point I don't have anything to clarify why or what possible made him do what he did, whether he was under the influence at the time, whether he was having any other issues".

Students expressed shock and sadness over the reported death; some said they first heard about it through his close friends.

Witnesses told police the 18-year-old was driving the wrong way down a busy highway at 160km/h when his McLaren sports auto hit another vehicle.

A famous YouTube gamer has been identified as the driver who killed a mother and daughter in a suicide mission.

The crash also killed two in the SUV, a 12-year-old girl and a 43-year-old woman, reports say.

The fiery crash happened on the I-805 HOV in San Diego, Calif., on Thursday.

The Union-Tribune identified the victims in the SUV as mother and daughter.

Heitmann died from blunt force trauma, the medical examiner's office said.

Witnesses told police the McLaren had been travelling at over 100 miles per hour (160km/h) at the time, and was driving southbound in a northbound lane on the Interstate 805 road.

Known online as "McSkillet", Heitmann had gotten rich on video gaming but lost access to some income when a publisher banned him from the practice of "skin gambling", the Wrap explains.

In December, McSkillet posted a video of the Maclaren on his YouTube channel. His last video appeared to have been posted some five months ago.

Thirty minutes before the crash, the same McLaren vehicle was seen crashing through the gates of Ashley Falls elementary school in the city. The McSkillet YouTube channel amassed 877k subscribers over the course of its four-year existence, leading to it being widely considered one of the most popular of its genre. After crashing through the gate, Heitmann exited his vehicle and smashed a window at the school.

Sanchez confirmed to the newspaper that CHP investigators are looking into whether those incidents are related.
