AP  |  Providence(US) 

Police say a Rhode Island man who streamed himself on Live speeding and weaving in and out of traffic was seriously injured when he crashed into a garbage truck and a concrete barrier.

State police say 20-year-old Onasi Olio-Rojas, of Pawtucket, lost control yesterday on US Route 6 in Providence.

The video was posted on Olio-Rojas' page and shows him driving at speeds exceeding 160 Kmph and weaving through traffic.

Police confirmed its authenticity to WJAR-TV.

Police say Olio-Rojas hit the truck as it got on the highway, then crossed three lanes and hit the barrier.

Rescue crews extricated him from the car. The truck driver wasn't hurt.

Traffic was backed up for at least two hours.

Police are still investigating and might bring charges.
