To make matters worse, the alleged culprit had previously racked up eight tickets for running red lights and speeding violations. Her jail time may be up to 15 years, though this tragedy will last a lifetime for the grieving parents of both young children.

It's a good addition to the YouTube platform, especially considering it will help provide proper credit to artists and songwriters involved in songs. YouTube says its new feature is made possible by its digital fingerprinting Content ID system, which logs copyright owners' information in a database to identify and manage content on the platform. This includes contributing artists, songwriters, labels and publishers. It also added a new trending chart that will "essentially preference new music and will be updated multiple times a day to provide a near-real-time view of what is truly the hottest, has the highest trajectory, on the platform", YouTube's head of label relations Stephen Bryan told Billboard. Plus, credits will be accessible for all future videos with music. "Music in this video" will be apart of all videos on YouTube.

JT Meyers, CEO of mtheory, commented: "Artists invest significant creative energy and financial resources to create compelling music videos". This is due to the overall lack of online data, but new partnerships between labels, streaming services, publishers, and licensing societies are helping alleviate this.
