Five friends died last weekend after one of them got behind the wheel of a car they were all riding in and drove drunk and recklessly, all while tweeting about it.
Jonathan Watson, 21, was driving his 2005 Nissan Sentra at a high rate of speed after leaving a party in Ontario, California on September 2.
This was Watson’s twitter Timeline just before the sad incident.
The crash occurred soon after this last tweet.
Ontario police Cpl. Bill Russell said, “The driver of the vehicle was 21 years old and the other four occupants ranged in age from 20 to 23 years old.
“We do know that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and did run a traffic signal just prior to colliding,” Russell said.
The car rolled over at least five times before smashing through a cement pillar and landing in the backyard of a home.
