PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A man who streamed himself on Facebook Live driving more than 100 mph is in critical condition after crashing into a dump truck.

The Providence Journal reported that the crash happened after 20-year-old Onasi Olio-Rojas lost control on a busy highway in Providence, Rhode Island.

A video posted to his Facebook page shows him weaving through traffic at speeds reaching up to 114 mph. Police confirmed the video’s authenticity to WJAR.

The Honda Civic that Olio-Rojas was driving crossed three highway lanes and hit a dump truck that was joining the highway from an entrance ramp.

The video ends abruptly at the scene of the crash. Olio-Rojas had to be extricated from the car and remains in critical condition.

The driver of the dump truck was not hurt, but the wreck caused traffic to be backed up for at least two hours.
