YouTube Vlogger David Slavitt Collides With Tractor-Trailer While Live Streaming on Facebook

Playing YouTube Vlogger Crashes Into Tractor-Trailer While Live Streaming Commute

A man was airlifted to the hospital after his vlogging attempt went terribly wrong.

YouTuber David Slavitt, 33, was live streaming on Facebook when he reportedly failed to yield at a stop sign and was T-boned by a tractor-trailer, according to KTLA.

In a video of the moment, which occurred in San Bernardino County, Calif., Slavitt is seen talking to the camera about his afternoon plans and suddenly screaming. The video then cuts out.

Officials believe his distracted driving may have caused the crash, KSWB reports.

"This individual luckily did not lose his life in the collision," California Highway Patrol, Sgt. Steve Geraty, said. "This could have been a family of five going to school or worse and the fact... that he's the only injury in this collision is lucky."

The driver of the tractor-trailer, 58-year-old Elias Orozco, told police he attempted to swerve left to avoid colliding with the Slavitt, but his truck hit the driver's side door.

Slavitt, who has 1,500 subscribers, suffered blunt force trauma and was transported the hospital, according to CHP.

Orozco was not injured.
