Rochelle Hager, of Waterville, Maine was an executive chef that was famous for posting TikTok videos and was set to be married this fall.

The TikTok star was on the phone talking to fiancée when winds blew a tree limb on the car and killed her.

Hager’s fiancée Brittanie Lynn Ritchie told the Morning Sentinel she heard a crash on Monday while on the phone with Hager and then complete silence.

Winds were gusting greater than 50 mph at the time.

Police said the 31-year old Hager died instantly in the crash in Farmington. According to the Associated Press, Hager was the only one in the vehicle at the time.

Hager was very popular on TikTok and hopefully TikTok can pay homage to her in some way that will keep her memory alive.
