Followers are remembering influencer Júlia Hennessy Cayuela.
According to Brazilian newspaper O Tempo, citing the Federal Highway Police of Paraná and Ecovia, the rising social media star died following a motorcycle accident in Brazil’s São José dos Pinhais on Thursday, July 15. She was 22 years old.
The local outlet, again citing the police, reported Júlia and her husband, Daniel Cayuela, were traveling along the highway when they collided with a truck. Brazilian news portal G1, also citing the police, wrote the suspicion is the truck was crossing lanes when the motorcycle hit the side of the vehicle. However, the news organization noted the cause of the accident is still under investigation.
Per O Tempo, Júlia was transported by helicopter to a nearby hospital, where she later died. Her stepfather, Jerônimo Onofre, told G1 Júlia passed away in the early hours of Friday, July 16.
“We were at our house, me and my wife, Julia’s mother, when the hospital called with the news,” he recalled to the website. “We got a flight and, at midnight, we were in Curitiba. She died around 1:00 a.m.”
