Transcript for Deadly Car Crash Captured on Snapchat
We're learning more tonight about a deadly car crash at speeds allegedly over 100 miles per hour. The final moments captured on what many call a dangerous feature on Snapchat. Witnesses describing the wreckage as a horror scene. Here's Marci Gonzalez. Reporter: Tonight, this Snapchat video showing some of the final moments of a young couple's lives renewing questions about the popular app's speed filter. What is the Snapchat speed feature? Reporter: The feature that clocks and allows users to post how fast they're going showed the Volkswagen golf speeding at more than 115 miles an hour Wednesday night in Tampa. Just minutes after the passenger recorded the video, police say the car crossed over a median and slammed head-on into a minivan. All I seen was a blue flash. It just burst into flames. Reporter: The driver in the video, Pablo Cortes III and his passenger Jolie Bartolome were killed, as well as three people in the van. It's just tragic, it's just really tragic. Reporter: Concerns about Snapchat's speed filter were raised earlier this year following this crash in Atlanta. While Snapchat says there's no record of the driver, Christal Mcgee, using the app at the time of the accident, one of her story. She was trying to hit 100 miles an hour and post it on Snapchat. Reporter: Tonight, a Snapchat spokesperson saying in a statement, we actively discourage our community from using the speed filter while driving, including by displaying a "Do not snap and drive" warning message in the app itself. And Mcgee's case has not yet been heard by a grand injury. Meanwhile, three people injured in this week's crash remain hospitalized.
