    Police say a Rhode Island man who streamed himself on Facebook Live driving 114 mph and weaving in and out of traffic was critically injured when he crashed into a garbage truck and a concrete barrier. 

    State police say 20-year-old Onasi Olio-Rojas, of Pawtucket, lost control Wednesday on U.S. Route 6 in Providence. 

    The video posted on Olio-Rojas' Facebook page shows him driving 114 mph and weaving through traffic. Police confirmed its authenticity to WJAR-TV. 

    Police say Olio-Rojas hit the truck as it got on the highway, then crossed three lanes and hit the barrier. 

    Rescue crews extricated him from the car. He was in critical condition Thursday. 

    The truck driver wasn't hurt. 

    Traffic was backed up for at least two hours. 

    Police are still investigating and might bring charges.
