TikTok star dead after accident while doing burnouts

A TikTok star has died in a crash while doing burnouts in a ute.

Timothy Hall, 18, also known as Timbo The Redneck on Tiktok, from the US state of Florida, was doing donuts in his ute, according to his brother-in-law Tony.

Tony posted a video on his YouTube channel explaining he died “doing donuts in the front yard”.

“He was doing donuts with his girlfriend and the truck just flipped over and he flew out the driver’s side window,” he said.

“Truck landed on top of him. I’m just making this video because we made so many videos together and he used to talk to me all the time about how much you guys and his fans meant to him.”

His mum Tassie also posted a video confirming her son’s death to his followers.

“He won’t be making any more videos at all. My son was in a bad accident yesterday and didn’t make it," she said.

"I want to thank everybody for all the fans that he had. He loved TikTok and believed in all the fans and everybody that supported him. It meant a lot to me. I want to thank y'all for all the fans that he had, and my heart is just so broken."

Timbo The Redneck had more than 220,000 followers and often posted videos about driving utes and the deep south with a strong, US southern drawl. He also appeared to be a staunch supporter of former US President Donald Trump.
