A troubling video has been released, showing women getting killed in a tragic accident while filming themselves singing.
In the video, three women are seen driving on a freeway and singing while looking into the camera. The female driver is seen in the video taking her eyes of the road multiple times to look into the camera. They were singing and smiling one minute and the next they crashed.
The crash, which occurred on the afternoon of Saturday, September 2, is believed to have been caused by the fact that they were taking selfies rather than concentrating the road. They were driving on the BR-153 highway, near the Gurupi Industrial Park, in the state of Tocantins, Brazil when their vehicle invaded the oncoming lane and crashed into a semi truck. All three passengers in the car died on impact.
According to information from the Brazilian Federal Highway Police, the driver of a Chevrolet Sonic sedan lost control of vehicle, rolled into the opposite lane and was hit in the side by an 18 wheeler truck.
The video of them moments before the fatal crash was posted on the internet. It is not known if they streamed it live, or if someone recovered the video from their phone and uploaded it after the crash.
The names of the women have been disclosed. They are Lélia Neves (driver), Ivanilda Neves and Karine Neves. They bear the same surname so it is possible they are related.
