Russian Instagram star dubbed ‘Sexiest Biker’ dies in crash

Petrova had over 60,000 followers on Instagram and regularly posted pictures and video of her riding her CBR600RR


INTERNET blogger and vlogger Olga Petrova has been killed in what appears to be a high-speed accident with a Volvo in the Russian capital.

It’s not clear whether the rider was at fault or the driver of the Volvo, although it’s clear the bike was travelling at speed given the devastation left after the smash. A witness at the scene claims they saw the 22-year-old being flung across the road while police state she was traveling to fast to avoid the turning vehicle.

Shortly before the accident Petrova had been riding round Moscow on her Honda CBR600RR, enjoying the last days of the Russian biking season and filming content for her Instagram page.

Whatever happened, it’s a horrendous incident.

Our thoughts go out to her family.
