Grand Theft Auto RP run, it’s fair to say that his skills at the wheel aren’t at the same level. 

The popular streamer, who has over 3.8 million followers on the streaming platform, has joked about quitting the roleplaying multiplayer mod because of his inability to win races and his return to the game hasn’t been exactly been easy where driving is concerned.

However, that didn’t stop him from getting into another race against three other drivers. While his fans might not have expected much from the performance they were about to see, they could never have predicted Summit to crash into another vehicle at the speed he did during his May 12 stream.

RockstarRacing is one of the most popular features of Grand Theft Auto Online.

The streamer was pacing down the streets of Los Santos at almost 170mph before he smashed into the back of another player’s vehicle, taking him off the road with just a third of a mile left to race.

Summit then hilariously decided to casually pull out his repair kit to fix up his car, right in front of everybody involved in the collision.

“Oh, I’m dead…” Summit said, laughing after realizing the damage he had done to both vehicles. The player he was racing against also smashed into the back of a car, too. As both of them repaired their cars, a victim of the accident decided to check up on the pair.

“How are we doing gentlemen? We got EMS [Emergency Medical Services] on the way here alright,” they said, before Summit completed the fix, started laughing, and sped away.

The collision meant that Summit just narrowly lost the race in the end, but viewers couldn’t help but notice that his vehicle started up slowly after the repair. He later explained that it was a bug.

“It was slow because my car wouldn’t start,” he said. “I had to pull my phone out, it’s like that weird glitch. So, it’s like I’ve got to turn on my engine, fuck it didn’t turn on, I press P, press escape, and turn it on again.”

Fans will be hoping that his next race will be as eventful, but with Summit1g finishing in first place.

Mark ‘Markiplier’ Fischbach has given fans an update after being rushed to hospital on December 2, with the YouTube star saying he’s under observation for the next couple of days, but everything will be okay in the end.

Markiplier was admitted to hospital on November 1 for what the YouTube star, with over 27 million followers, claimed was “intense abdominal pain.”

“Hey gang, don’t want to worry you but had [to] take a quick trip to the hospital. Some intense abdominal pain but nothing life-threatening. Hopefully will be out of here in no time,” he said on Instagram.

While it’s not the star’s first trip to hospital, having been admitted a number of times in the past, including having surgery in 2015 for a blockage in his intestines, his fans were obviously concerned.

After that short statement though, he has since released a short video from hospital, detailing his “bowel obstruction” complications, and giving fans an update on when he will be healthy and normal again.

“We did a bunch of tests this morning, a lot of scans, a lot of X-rays…to see if anything was moving through me. It looked like things were moving through okay, which is good…and we’re going to observe a little bit longer,” he said on December 2.

“The doctor said that if I can have a ‘bowel movement,’ then everything is on the up and up. If you can poop then your intestines are working.”

While the YouTuber won’t be back in action for another couple of days, he has managed to avoid yet another surgery. Until then, he’s going to rest up.

“I’m going to be in the hospital for probably another night, just for observation so they can check up on me and make sure nothing is going to explode. It does look like I’ll avoid surgery this time, which is always a plus.”

Plus, Markiplier has also dismissed a fan “theory” that has cropped up. The YouTuber released a 34-minute long video on Pop-Tarts just a few days ago, with many claiming that his new blockage was revenge for that. Fischbach appreciated the humor, but nevertheless, put it to bed.

“I don’t think it was the pop tarts. I know there are a lot of theories out there about it being the pop tarts coming after me because I dared to diss Mr. Kellogg himself, but I don’t think he’s posthumously attacking me for my intestines,” he joked.
