Olga Pronina, a 40-year-old social media star who went by ‘Monika9422’ online, lost control of her bike and crashed into a fence in the city of Vladivostok in south-eastern Russia’s Primorsky Krai region on Monday.
Pronina, who is also a hairdresser, suffered fatal injuries and died on impact as her bike split in half during the crash, police said. The woman was a popular social media star due to her stunts on her BMW S1000RR and raunchy outfits.
Friends who arrived on scene said that the woman was a skilled driver who would race at extremely high speeds. While it’s currently unclear if she was filming when the crash occurred, her phone could not be found at the scene.
