#RIPAlicia Trends After Justin Bieber Fan Alicia Tamboia Killed In Car Accident
Alicia Tamboia, a well-known Justin Bieber fan who helped connect other Beliebers with their idol, died in a car accident on Friday. She was 24.
Police say Tamboia and Cody Veverka were killed shortly before midnight on I-90 near Albany, New York. The Volkswagen in which they were passengers hit another vehicle and spun into a tractor-trailer.
When news of her death was reported on Saturday, #RIPAlicia became the top Twitter trending topic in the United States as Bieber fans expressed their sorrow.
Bieber has yet to acknowledge the news on Twitter. In the past, the pop star publicly grieved the deaths of high-profile Beliebers, including Avalanna Routh, the 6-year-old affectionately called “Mrs. Bieber,” who died from a rare form of brain cancer.
