An 18-year-old TikTok star died after he fell out of his truck while performing donuts and the vehicle landed on top of him.
Timbo the Redneck whose real name is Timothy Hall was killed on Saturday when his truck ‘Judy’, a GMC Sierra crashed, sending him flying before the flipped-over truck landed on top of Hall.
Hall’s mother Tassie announced the news on his social media channels saying: ‘He won’t be creating anymore videos, no more videos at all. My son was in a bad accident yesterday and didn’t make it.’
Tassie, who said her ‘heart is just so broken,’ told her son’s followers that Hall was so grateful for their support and encouragement.
‘I wanna thank everybody, for all the fans that he had. He loved TikTok and just believed in all the fans, everybody that supported him, it meant a lot to him,’ Tassie said. She has also launched a fundraiser to pay for her son’s funeral.
‘He passed away this Saturday in a truck crash with his girlfriend, Kori,’ Hall’s brother-in-law Tony shared in a YouTube video.
The accident occurred in the front yard of a friend’s house. Updates on Kori’s condition have not been shared.
‘He was doing donuts in the front yard in JD’s house,’ Tony said. ‘The truck just flipped over and he flew out the driver’s side window and the truck landed on top of him — his whole body, the truck landed on top of him.’
Hall had more than 2 million likes on TikTok and over 200,000 followers.
