Laticha Bracero and Alyssa Cordova were leaving Drake and J. Cole’s joint It’s All a Blur – Big As the What? tour stop in St. Louis on Feb. 13 when they were hit by a speeding car that ran a red light, as seen in terrifying footage posted by TMZ. The St. Louis Metropolitan police department reported that Bracero passed away at the scene, while Cordova died later at the hospital.

The suspect, Monte Henderson, was arrested charged with two counts of armed criminal action and involuntary manslaughter, speeding his SUV at 70 mph.

Bracero’s sister set up a GoFundMe after the news to raise money for a funeral and to transfer their bodies back to their hometown of Chicago. At the time of publication, nearly $40,000 has been raised. “Lety was a hard working regional supervisor at Wintrust bank and a dedicated mother, loving sister, niece/cousin,” the description reads. “Her only child Alyssa was going to college and working part time for Starbucks. Alyssa loved music concerts and although was old enough to travel to concerts on her own, her mom would always escort her. The two were inseparable and shared a strong bond.”
