Kylie Rae Harris, 30, died on Wednesday
Country music singer Kylie Rae Harris has died in a car crash in New Mexico which also claimed the life of a 16-year-old girl.
The 30-year-old Texan native was on her way to perform at a music festival in Taos when she got into the crash on Wednesday at around 9pm.
Police say alcohol was a factor in the crash but they have not indicated who they suspect was drinking.
Three cars were involved; Harris’, the 16-year-old girl’s and another.
The third driver escaped unharmed. They have not been identified.
Hours beforehand, Harris tweeted that she was running out of gas.
She also shared a haunting final Instagram story describing how many of her relatives had died in the exact area she was driving through.
‘I just got to Taos, I’m playing this festival here.
‘I love this festival, for those of you who don’t know… my grandparents lived here, my uncle still lives here, but literally everybody that was here has passed away except from my uncle and including my dad and I’m going to cry, driving these roads… you would think, I’ve been driving for almost 12 hours, you’d think that’s so exhausting and boring but the last couple of hours just driving through the mountains, remembering my place in the backseat as a little kid when my dad was making these treks here it was the f*****g best,’ she said.
She went on to say that ‘everyone grieves’ differently.
Harris was due to play at the Big Barn Dance Festival on Thursday.
