A YouTuber with a passion for motorbikes has died in a tragic road crash riding her new vehicle.
Amanda Andrade Maturana, known online as 'Amanda da 160', died in Londrina, Brazil on the night of November 6.
Amanda, 22, amassed a giant 70,000 Youtube subscribers and 50,000 Instagram followers by sharing her love for two-wheel power.
Initial information suggests that Amanda crashed while fleeing from police as she earlier posted a video at a motorbike racing event on Instagram.
Hours later, police were called to the illegal gathering.
According to reports, everyone at the meeting dispersed when the police arrived and Amanda fled speeding.
She soon lost control of her newly bought 600 litre Yamaha XJ6 after owning it for just a week having shared a video on Youtube of the moment she took the bike home.
The police will investigate whether Amanda was over the drink-drive limit at the time of the incident.
A Military Police spokesman told UOL : "There was a follow-up on Avenida Waldemar Springer to a certain extent, when she ended up losing the vehicle.
"Shortly after, the PM was called to attend an accident with a motorcyclist. It turned out that it was the same person who ran away."
Amanda died at the scene of the accident where she was found without a helmet but it is suspected it came off during the crash.
Head, chest and cervical injuries proved fatal.
A funeral has already been held for the Youtuber who was buried in Londrina.
