Sup Travellers?! A simple car ride to a bachelorette party turned to tears this weekend after a tragic accident that claimed the life of 26 year old Collette Moreno. The New York Daily News reports that the accident occurred on Friday, when Collette Moreno and Ashley Theobald, both 26, were driving to the Lake of the Ozarks for Moreno's bachelorette party.

Theobald was driving a 2013 Chevy Malibu on Missouri Highway 5, when she attempted to pass another vehicle on the two-lane road, 

In an interview, Theobald said she was passing the semi-truck because it was emitting a lot of exhaust fumes, which were causing Moreno to cough.

"She has really bad asthma … and she was coughing, so I was like, 'OK, we have to pass,'" Theobald said.

It was while passing, police say, that a man driving a 1999 Dodge Ram pickup from the opposite direction came over the crest of a hill in Morgan County, Missouri and struck the passenger side of the Malibu, sending the car veering off the left side of the road.

Theobald was transported to a local hospital where she was treated and released but Moreno wasn't as lucky. Emergency responders transported the young woman to University Hospital in Columbia, where she was pronounced dead. A cause of death has not yet been released.

Just eight minutes before the tragic incident, Moreno snapped a selfie with Theobald, her best friend, while listening to Taylor Swift. It was the very last selfie she took before she died a very very untimely death.

Moreno was expected to marry fiance, Jesse Arcobasso next month in Jamaica. She is survived by a 5 year old son.

Her fiance was so close to marrying the woman of his dreams but his dream was all crushed to pieces by this incredibly tragic incident. My condolences go out to everyone who was hurt. Moreno's best friend Theobald currently faces charges of careless and imprudent driving. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
