Young Woman Reportedly Broadcast Accidental Car Crash Death Over Facebook Live

The driver is reportedly recovering from injuries.

A young Czech woman riding in a passenger seat in a car was broadcasting over Facebook Live when the car suddenly flipped, resulting in her death, reported the British tabloid The Daily Mail, which obtained the Facebook video of the crash.

The woman, identified by the Daily Mail as Nikol Barabasova, 22, is shown laughing and joking with the teenage driver of the vehicle before the car flips as they scream.

The vehicle was driving at more than 74 miles per hour when it struck a barrier, The Sun reported.

The screams are then followed by silence, as the car flips again. The video streams her seat belt for 20 minutes, the Daily Mail claimed, before Czech Republic emergency responders stopped the feed.

The driver is in the hospital with head injuries, the tabloid reported. Barabasova reportedly died in the crash.

Police are investigating the crash, the tabloid claimed. 

It’s unclear when the car crash occurred or what the source of this story is. Many local Russian and Ukrainian outlets appeared to link back to the British tabloids’s accounts of the accident.
