TikTok star ‘Timbo the Redneck’ killed after beloved pick-up truck rolls on him

A young TikTok star has died after his pickup truck flipped over and crushed him as he fell out the window.

"Timbo the Redneck" whose real name is Timothy Isaiah Hall, 18, was doing 'doughnuts' in his much-loved "Big Booty Judy" which ended with the horror incident.

Timbo from Florida had over 200,000 followers on TikTok and 2.5 million likes thanks to his #LivingSouthern comedy videos.

Fans could not get enough of his snuff-dipping, fishing and truck-stunting exploits shared across social media, NYPost reports.

But it was one of his stunts which allegedly killed him on Saturday with his Confederate flag-boasting truck rolling on top of his body.

Timbo's mum, Tessie Hires, 37, announced the tragic death of her son on his TikTok and Instagram accounts in a clip that has since gone viral.

She said: "He won’t be making any more videos — no more videos at all. My son was in a bad accident yesterday and didn’t make it.

"I wanna thank everybody for all the fans that he had. He loved TikTok and just believed in all the fans. Everybody that supported him, it meant a lot to him."

Timbo’s brother-in-law, who is known as Tony in his Youtube videos, emotionally explained how the 18-year-old died.

Tony said: "He passed away this Saturday in a truck crash with his girlfriend, Kori [Williams], out in the front yard of his friend Jay’s house."

"He was doing doughnuts in the front yard in JD’s house [when] he truck just flipped over and he flew out the driver’s side window and the truck landed on top of him. His whole body, that truck landed on top of him. He’s passed away."

Speculation previously erupted over Timbo actually being a 30-year-old rom Ottawa, Canada but according to his social media accounts, he graduated from a Florida high school in May.

Timbo had recently shown off his GMC truck he nicknamed "Big Booty Judy" over Instagram where his bio read: "Living life to the fullest. Hope my vids make y’all laugh."

Since his death was made public, his diehard fans have donated almost $10,000 (£7,200) for funeral costs on a now-deactivated GoFundMe page.

Tony paid tribute to his brother-in-law on Youtube, saying: "I’m just making this video because I love Timbo, and I know you guys cared about him, too, even though you didn’t know him personally.

"He touched me in a way that I can’t explain, and he was one of those types of people where you don’t meet those types of people every day.

"He was a special kind of person."
