A driver who filmed himself speeding on Facebook Live is in a critical condition after the livestream ended with his car smashing into a garbage truck.

Police say the 20-year-old Rhode Island man was driving at more than 100 miles per hour and was seriously injured in the accident, as reported by CBS Boston.

Onasi Olio-Rojas, of Pawtucket, Providence hit the back of the truck as it got on the highway on US Route 6 and went on to cross three lanes before striking a concrete barrier.

The live streaming footage of the incident shows Olio-Rojas driving his Honda Civic erratically at 116 miles an hour (186 kilometers per hour).

It also shows Olio-Rojas gesturing directly to the camera while a rap song plays.

Olio-Rojas had to be rescued from the trapped car by emergency crews. He was taken to Rhode Island Hospital. Nobody else was injured in the incident.

Police say Olio-Rojas had a suspended license at the time of the crash, according to ABC6 News. The investigation is ongoing and the possibility of charges being pressed has not being ruled out.
