A group of 'YouTubers' in Italy filmed a challenge aimed at spending 50 consecutive hours in a 'Lamborghini' type car.

During the challenge, the Lamborghini collided with a smart car and caused the death of five-year-old Manuel Pruiti. His mother and four-year-old sister were injured.

The accident caused an uproar in Italy. It was reported that the group tried to overtake a vehicle at high speed and even teased drivers on the way, before colliding with the smart vehicle and causing Manuel's death.

It was reported in the local media that the driver of the Lamborghini was under the influence of cannabis. The police questioned the driver on suspicion of vehicular homicide and aggravated injuries.

Following the accident, the group of YouTubers has suspended their popular YouTube channel.
