Australian woman killed playing chicken with traffic had taken MDMA - reports

A young Australian woman who died playing chicken with oncoming traffic reportedly had MDMA, cannabis and alcohol in her system.

Shania McNeill, 21, was filmed on Snapchat driving her pink Suzuki home from a party in Sydney in April.

The footage shows her driving on the wrong side of the road and playing up to the camera.

A passenger then loudly screams "Shania!" before her expression changes from excitement to horror. The camera then pans to the ground and the video suddenly ends.

McNeill had collided with another vehicle at high speed. Despite receiving medical attention she died at the scene.

The other vehicle's driver was seriously injured while McNeill's two passengers, Faeda Hunter, 20, and Hazel Wildman, 23, required hospital treatment.

According to The Daily Telegraph, McNeill was two times the legal blood alcohol level before her fatal crash, and had also recently consumed cannabis and MDMA.

McNeill's father Lee said he had struggled to deal with the loss of his daughter.

"It was that knock at the door that every parent dreads... you know three-thirty, four o'clock in the morning, that pounding on the door, that sound down the hall... it's going to haunt me for the rest of my life," he told 9News in April.

"I never knew it was possible to feel anything like this... I just wish I could have told her I love her."
