ORLANDO, FLORIDA: Three people, including a TikTok influencer, were killed in a hit-and-run accident in Florida, on Sunday morning, December 11. Well-known social media influencer Ali Spice, real name Alexandra Dulin, was killed along with two others, shortly after 2 am, when a Toyota Tacoma driving the wrong way on State Road 44 crashed into their car.
James Dulin, Spice Ali’s father, stated that his daughter had just returned from a Thanksgiving vacation and that he last spoke with her on Saturday when they were planning another Christmas visit.
“It’s still not real. We still have moments of disbelief,” Dulin stated. He further added, “I guess with my daughter you always take a lot of pictures. But man, we took a lot of pics over Thanksgiving, and who knew that those were the last pictures that we would take?”, as reported by Fox News.
The Florida Highway Patrol reported that she and the other two occupants in their Infiniti died at the site. The Infiniti driver was seriously injured but survived. According to Fox Orlando, the Toyota Tacoma driver ran from the scene on foot. Another occupant of the Tacoma was found alive by authorities. “I just want to see justice,” Dulin said, as reported by Fox News
The Dulin family announced her demise on her own Instagram account, “This is alidspicexo around her 17th birthday. I’m posting this because this young lady made a mistake that social media took hold of and created its own narrative, rumors and lies around this time in her life. Having experienced this being done, we can assure you that our Ali would not want anyone to use social media as a vehicle to hurt someone by accusing them of the crime that took her life. Our family is working with the Florida police to solve this crime. Please allow them to do their job and don’t tear anyone down because of your belief someone did this. We have full confidence the person responsible will be caught. If you have information you believe is valuable, then give it to the Florida Police. Let’s only post what we know to be true. At this time we don’t know who did this or if the driver was impaired at the time.”
The suspect’s vehicle has been confiscated as investigators continue their hunt for him. They are also seeking to obtain a search warrant so they may examine it. It’s not immediately obvious whether the suspect was under the influence of alcohol or drugs when the accident happened, as per reports.
As her family is urging for justice, her followers are missing her and grieving for her. Dulin reported that messages, flowers, food, and condolences have been sent to the family. The social media sensation, 21, began college with a fashion design major but left when her modeling career took off.
