In yet another incident of streaming while driving going predictably wrong, an IRL streamer seemed distracted by talking to his viewers in chat rather than paying attention to the road.

Police forces have continually been warning of the dangers of streaming while driving, after the number of in incidents has shot up as streaming in general becomes more popular.

Believed to be driving somewhere in California, a state known for congested traffic in busy areas, the streamer is waiting at a red light as he talks to his chat about general things.

When he thinks the light changes for him to go, he accelerates all while still talking to his chat and glancing down at his camera placed on the passenger seat beside him.

However, as he is distracted he fails to notice that in fact it was not his turn to move at the junction, and coming from where he believed traffic had stopped at a red light, a vehicle blasts its horn before smashing into the side of the streamer’s car.

His camera and mic fortunately remains intact, meaning viewers could continue to hear the exchange as he immediately apologized to the other driver, explaining he believed it was a red light.

Thankfully, it appears from what is visible in the video and the discussion in the background, that no one was seriously injured in the collision.

It is a wake up call for the streamer, and hopefully serves as yet another reminder that streaming while driving is incredibly dangerous, no matter how casual it may seem

A past incident we reported in led to the streamer being hospitalized with serious injuries, after unwittingly driving out in front of a massive rig truck.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
