A well-known Chilean gamer was among six persons murdered in a horrible head-on collision Monday morning, which stunned the local community.

According to local reports, Mara Ignacia Celedón, also known as Maru Rockets on social media, died after the cab she was riding in collided with another automobile on Route 9 in Chile’s Punta Arenas region.

According to El Desconcierto Chile, the incident was caused in part by ice on the road, and speed was also a factor.

According to the publication, Celedón and all four individuals in the second automobile died at the spot. According to BolaVIP, the cab driver died on the route to the hospital.

The crash injured the 28-year-old gamer’s boyfriend and a buddy who were also in the taxi. Both are video game streamers. Her boyfriend Ignacio Carrasco, also known on social media as Dime Nacho, and friend Shin Yang, also known as Shinipan, were both rushed to a nearby hospital.

The trio had traveled to Patagonia and were taking the taxi to the airport to fly back to Santiago when it crashed with the second car, according to El Desconcierto.
