KIEV – A teenage beauty queen and model live streamed her own death on Instagram as she filmed herself and a friend drinking and driving in Ukraine.
Disturbing footage shows Sofia Magerko, 16, along with her friend Dasha Medvedeva, 24, driving at speed and drinking alcohol from a green glass bottle when their BMW car smashed head-on into a lamp post.
The duo are in high spirits drinking from bottles moments before the horrific accident with one of them saying to the camera: ‘Hi boys.’ The girls were laughing and joking, saying how much they ‘enjoyed life’.
Then the girls’ car turns a corner as they laugh and sing. Neither of them know they’re just moments from a fatal car accident.
After a momentary scream, a crunch is heard and the duo fall silent forever.
The camera keeps rolling, however, and captures the sound as bystanders discover the scene.
One man can be heard saying: “F*** there is a dead body there… another one fell out of the car.”
Another can be heard phoning for an ambulance, telling the operator “please come fast, a car crash here”.
Reports suggest Medvedeva lost control of the car before it hit a lamp post and then a tree in Izum, eastern Ukraine.
She died en-route to hospital and Magerko, who had won a local beauty contest, died instantly at the scene.
Disturbing pictures from the scene show the mangled wreckage of the BMW car in the Kharkiv region of the country. The police confirmed the tragic death but did not give a reason for the crash.
