The video shows the young woman playing chicken with oncoming traffic and it was also revealed Ms McNeill was two times over the legal blood alcohol level, with cannabis and MDMA in her system at the time of the crash.

'This is what really happened,' Ms Hunter says, staring into the camera.

Hours after the collision, the two surviving friends drew criticism for sharing a selfie of themselves recovering in hospital.

In the image, they're both seen wearing neck braces and hooked up to medical machines.

The pair become emotional and are seen wiping their tears as they explain they miss their friend but 'can't fix this'.

Ms McNeill's father, Lee McNeil, has slammed the girls for profiting from his daughter's death and taking the TV deal.

Mr McNeill told The Sunday Telegraph he was approached by two networks but refused the offer saying it makes him sick to use his daughter's death for money.

Mr McNeill is also still struggling with the circumstances around his daughter's death after it was revealed on Snapchat video she was playing chicken with traffic in the lead up to the crash.

'Playing games like that, not look through a red light and things like that I don't understand it, it's so senseless,' he said.

She then waves at the person filming to direct the camera back towards the road before the footage cuts out.

The Snapchat footage was uploaded and viewed by up to 50 people around the time Ms McNeill crashed.

Officers driving along Richmond Road noticed bystanders helping people out of the two destroyed vehicles.

Ms McNeill and her two passengers were freed from the wreckage before a passing police officer performed CPR on her.
