TikTok influencer Gabriel Salazar was killed in a car crash Sunday in San Antonio, Texas. The popular 19-year-old social media figure was on board a white Chevrolet Camaro involved in a police car chase when it crashed into a tree around 1:25 am.

According to People, a deputy from Zavala County Sheriff's Office overheard a call from the Crystal City Police Department regarding a police officer involved in an active pursuit of a vehicle. Authorities said Salazar was at the wheel of the Camaro as it traversed Highway US 83 and drove off the road. Salazar over-corrected and then sped off the roadway into a ditch, hitting several trees as the car flipped over several times and eventually burst into flames.

All three passengers of the Camaro with Salazar, were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Although full details on the incident surrounding the car chase have not yet been disclosed, county police from Zavala, Texas said they tried to stop the vehicle with a tire deflection device but failed.

Authorities identified the passengers riding with Salazar as 41-year-old Jose Luis Jimenez-Mora, Sergio Espinoza-Flores,36, and 23-year-old Jose Molina-Lara.
