Hager was driving in Farmington when a storm that caused gusts of over 80 km / h overturned the branches and killed them instantly, authorities said

Hager was the only occupant and no other vehicles were involved, said Farmington police chief Kenneth Charles, who described the situation as “tragic and unique”

Hager and Ritchie were both popular with TikTok. Together they had more than 400000 followers Ritchie wrote a tearful tribute saying Hager “loved her TikTok family”
