Instagram biking star killed in crash

Instagram biking star Annette Carrion has died in a motorcycle crash on a favourite stretch of motorway.

The 33-year-old American had gained a huge fan base on Instagram where she posted modelling photos for her 146,000 followers and promoted a motorcycle group for women she had co-founded.

One of her last posts was a tribute to her 81-year-old father just four days before her motorcycle went off a picturesque and curvy motorway in California. Her parents also recently died.

An online obituary stated: "Annette was greeted at heaven's gate by her parents Fernando and Sofia (Anguiano) Carrion who preceded her in death."
