Brazilian police are investigating an influencer after she knocked a personal trainer off his motorbike while making a sharp turn in her car.
CCTV cameras caught the smash as it happened in Manaus, Amazonas State, around 11.20am on 31st August.
Footage shows how blonde Rosa Tavares, 25, makes a sharp left turn at an intersection, putting her SUV in the path of victim Talis Roque da Silva’s motorbike.
As muscular Talis, 31, rides straight into the bonnet of the Volkswagen Taos, he is catapulted through the air like a rag doll.
After landing on the road with a thud, he skids into the kerb as his helmet flies off his head.
He then drops onto his back and lies motionless on the tarmac as bystanders rush towards him.
Talis was taken to hospital but died around 3pm after suffering a cardiac arrest, local media report.
That night, Tavares told her 61,500 Instagram followers: “I have no capacity for anything at all right now.
“What happened today was a great tragedy. Only God and my family know how my heart feels.
“I provided all the necessary assistance at the moment it happened, just as I am providing all the necessary support to the victim’s family.
“I am in mourning.”
Despite her claims, accident footage does not show Tavares providing help.
Traffic accident police are now investigating the case and – report local media – Tavares has since turned herself in at a police station flanked by lawyers.
Since the crash, netizens have been criticising the influencer for her “reckless” driving.
They have noted how she often records video selfies for Instagram Stories while behind the wheel.
It is not clear if Tavares – who owns a tobacco shop close to where the accident happened – was using her mobile phone when she hit Talis.
