The incident is not real
Yeah, you read that right. It seems like the caption of the TikTok video made a large portion of social media users believe that the video is real when in reality it has been taken from a game.
The caption of the video states, “On December 15, 2016, this video was taken in Florida where 34 y/o Courtney Winston unfortunately ran over this group of college students, unfortunately, non of them survived the impacts of the car.”
