Rochelle Hager Killed
A rising TikTok star was talking on her cellphone to her future wife when powerful winds blew a tree limb onto her car and killed her in Maine, authorities said.
Rochelle Hager, 31, of Waterville, was an executive chef who boasts over 144 thousand followers on TikTok, where she posts under the handle @roeurboat3 with her fiancé Brittanie Lynn Ritchie. Hager and Ritchie planned to marry in the fall.
“It happened really quick,” Brittanie Lynn Ritchie told the Morning Sentinel. “She has a phone mounted in her vent. I just heard a crash and then there was nothing.”
Hager was driving in Farmington when a storm that produced gusts topping 50 mph (80 kph) toppled the tree limb and killed her instantly, authorities said.
Hager was the sole occupant, and no other vehicles were involved, said Farmington Police Chief Kenneth Charles, who called the situation “tragic and unique.”
Hager and Ritchie were both popular on TikTok. Together, they amassed over 5 million likes. Ritchie posted a tearful tribute and said Hager “loved her TikTok fam.”
“I can’t eat or sleep. All I can do is make videos and wish you were here with me,” Ritchie captioned another tribute on TikTok Monday.
Her partner Brittanie Lynn, who was talking to Hager on the phone at the time of the accident, paid tribute in a tearful video.
The two were due to get married later this year.
“Thank you so much for your overwhelming support. I appreciate every single one of you, and Ro loved our TikTok fam,” Lynn said in a posting on the site.
“She was driving and we were having a wind storm. A tree fell on her car. She wasn’t in pain – she died instantly. I heard the crash and then there was nothing.”
