Nepal nurse Samikshya Subedi livestreamed herself with friends just before car crash
(ABC NEWS) — A 22-year-old Nepal nurse shared haunting footage of a doomed road trip in Australia before the vehicle’s driver lost control, killing the nurse and another passenger, according to reports.
Samikshya Subedi livestreamed herself and friends singing and dancing before the car rolled several times on Monaro Highway near Cooma around 3:40 a.m. Sunday, news.com.au reported.
The nurse, who was a passenger, had been traveling with four pals on a trip from Sydney to the Snowy Mountains, officials said.
Police said the car had been speeding when the driver lost control heading south on the highway.
Subedi was ejected from the back seat after the vehicle clipped a tree and rolled several times, Australia’s ABC News reported.
She and another passenger, Gopal Bhandari, were pronounced dead at the scene, News.com.au reported.
The three others were injured in the accident but were expected to survive, authorities said.
Queanbeyan police inspector Sandy Green said the surviving passengers were “exceptionally lucky.”
“When I arrived on the scene, I was taken aback,” Green told the Canberra Times. “This is a life-changing situation for all those emergency services, for every person that went past that accident today and particularly for those occupants in that car and their families.”
