This young woman was on the rear of the motorcycle ridden by her boyfriend. Speeding car rear-ended them and took off. The boyfriend survived and was taken to the hospital, but the girl died on the scene. It doesn’t look like she wore a safety helmet. Her boyfriend probably survived because he did have a helmet.
I’ve seen that many times in the third world countries – owner of a motorcycle has a helmet for himself, gives a friend a ride but has no helmet for them. Because of incompetent police force, these things are hardly every enforced so nobody really cares. It’s a disaster in the making.
Very sad. She had nice hair. It happened in the morning hours of today – April 21, 2012 on Felipe Camarão Avenue in Mossoró, near Posto de Rubinho, Brazil. Coward car driver who killed her dashed away. Hope these pictures find their way to him so he knows what cowardly hit and runner he is and that because of him, life of a young woman was lost. He’ll have to live with it for the rest of his life.
