Sunday Night June 16

This week Sunday Night looks into a Snapchat Video that had deadly consequences.

It’s the video that shocked the nation… a young woman driving erratically, giving her snapchat feed more attention than the road ahead. Then the picture cuts to black.

21-year-old Shania McNeill was playing chicken with cars on the other side of the road, steering into oncoming traffic before ducking back into her own lane. Her two friends Faeda and Hazel were with her in the car, laughing and filming every reckless moment. Then Shania didn’t swerve away in time.

Her car collided head on with another vehicle.  Shania was killed instantly. Faeda and Hazel were badly injured. So were the occupants of the other car… two musicians travelling home from a local gig.

Now Faeda and Hazel want to deliver an important message to other young people.

In a Sunday Night exclusive, Alex Cullen speaks with everyone involved in the tragedy as they struggle to understand this senseless waste of a young life.

 

SUNDAY NIGHT: TRUE STORIES hosted by Melissa Doyle airs on Sunday at 8.30pm on Seven
