Rochelle, who was on the social platform by the username @roeurboat3, died after a pine tree fell on the top of her car while she was driving through the strong winds, killing her instantly.
According to Farmington Police Chief, Kenneth Charles, the strong winds carried a limb of a pine tree limb onto the roof of her car and she couldn’t do anything to avoid it and was found dead at the scene after some people heard a crash.
Police officials confirmed that Rochelle Hager 31 was killed instantly in a “tragic and unique” accident that took place on Monday in Farmington, Maine. She was driving her Nissan SUV when strong winds brought down power lines, a utility pole, and tree branches, with the massive branch ultimately striking Hager’s car and killed her on the spot.
The official reports concluded that Hager’s car was struck by the tree and then crossed a central lane before crashing. She died right there on the spot. The winds were blowing at the speed of 88 kilometers per hour at that time. “It was obviously the direct result of the high winds,” said Charles.

While recalling the last conversation she had with her fiancée, Lyn said, “It happened really quickly. She has a phone mounted in her vent. I just heard a crash and then there was nothing. She didn’t see the tree coming. It was instant.”
