That’s what a lot of people are saying after learning of the high school senior who boasted on TikTok that she had never been in a car accident — only to die in a head-on collision a few days later.

Kara Santorelli, 18, was driving in Escambia County, Florida, when a Chevrolet sedan, going the wrong way on the highway, collided her Nissan SUV, per the Florida Highway Patrol. Santorelli and the driver of the other vehicle were both killed.

This took place not long after Santorelli posted a TikTok video in which she talked about her safety record as a driver.

“When they try call me a bad driver but I’ve never hit a person or an actual car,” she said in the video.

Santorelli was set to graduate from Northview High School in the spring.

“Today, with sad hearts, we welcome back our students after spring break. We are deeply sorry for the tragic loss of our senior Kara Santorelli,” the school said in a statement. “We hold tight to beautiful memories that she had left with us. Her beautiful smile and kind spirit will continue to be in the hearts of her friends and classmates. We also extend our condolences to her family, praying that they find comfort and strength in the midst of their grief.”

Along with spending time on TikTok, she enjoyed boating with her family and spending time on the beach, according to her obituary.

“A little piece of my heart died today when I found out my niece went to heaven,” her aunt, Gina Southard, wrote on Facebook, via the New York Post. “I love your beautiful soul Kara!”

A memorial event for Santorelli was held at Pensacola Beach.
