Two gorgeous influencers have been killed after the car they were travelling in was crashed under a coal truck that tipped over while they drove to a party.
Julia Noara, 21, and Leticia Hordones, 26, were on their way to Brasilian influencer Hugo Gomes’ birthday on Friday, 28th October.
They were accompanied by two other women identified as Melissa Correa, 22, and Leticia Oliveira, 25, in the vehicle.
The four women were heading to celebrate Hugo Gomes’ 20th birthday in the municipality of Para de Minas, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brasil, when they lost their lives.
Media reported that Julia and Leticia had even made Instagram posts to congratulate Hugo’s birthday earlier that day.
But their joyful plans soon turned into tragedy when they were hit by the truck loaded with coal on the BR-494 motorway, in Nova Serrana.
The truck reportedly overturned and collapsed on their vehicle trapping all four women inside.
Crews from the Minas Gerais Military Fire Department who rushed to the scene at around 10pm were only able to recover Noara and Hordones’ lifeless bodies from the car.
Their friends Correa and Oliveira survived but were immediately taken to a hospital in the municipality of Divinopolis as they were badly injured.
Local media reported that the truck driver did not suffer any injuries.
After having heard about the incident Hugo Gomes posted on Instagram: “Unfortunately, yesterday, four friends [had an accident] while going to my birthday.
“I waited to calm down a little to come talk to you and know the real facts. And I ended my birthday when I heard the news.
“Two beloved and dear friends have passed away and the other two are in the hospital.
“I just ask for a lot of prayers from you and thank you for all the messages. I only ask for prayers for all the families.
The 20-year-old influencer then shared a video in which he can be seen dancing alongside the two injured women.
He added: “You guys will get out of this!”
Julia’s family told the media on Saturday (29th September): “We are Julia’s family and it is with great regret that we inform you that Julia did not survive the injuries from the accident last night.
“Her funeral will take place in Vila Vicentina, in the Niteroi neighbourhood, after 3 pm.”
Leticia Hordones’ funeral took place at 4.30pm in Parque da Serra, in Divinopolis the same day.
