A pretty young mum who was driving a motorcycle she did not have a licence for has been hit by a car while rushing to get to the fitness studio and ignoring a red light.
Jackeline da Silva Lima, 27, was hit side-on by the car and thrown through the air in the west-central Brazilian city of Campo Grande on the morning of 12th April.
Footage shows how the impact of the collision threw the victim some 10 metres (33 ft), leaving the injured young woman lying on the street corner with several fractures.
The impact also caused the victim’s helmet to come off her head.
The emergency services were called to the scene and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on her for around 40 minutes, but she succumbed to her wounds and died at the scene.
The 30-year-old car driver emerged unscathed from the crash, despite visible damage to both vehicles. He was subjected to a breathalyser test, which resulted negative.
The police later found that Jackeline had a driving licence that was only valid for cars and not her motorbike, which she had bought recently.
According to local media, the young woman, who worked as a receptionist at a clinic, was heading to the gym when the accident took place.
Jackeline leaves behind a three-year-old son. Her childhood friend, Carolina Sansi, told local news site Midiamax: “As a mother, she was wonderful.
“She was always very hardworking and always pursued her goals.”
Jackeline was buried on the morning of 13th April.
