Britney Joy Car Accident:
On Monday, a car accident claimed the lives of beloved TikToker Britney Murphy (left) and her mother Sherie Smith (60). When Murphy and her mother Sherie Smith, 60, were travelling to Houston’s Emancipation Park to celebrate Juneteenth, they got killed in a collision.
Cofield claimed that her mother and sister had just left her house to attend the celebration.
She continued by saying that she came across the accident while she was walking home.
Tiffany Smith Cofield, Murphy’s sister and Smith’s daughter, told ABC 13,
“There will never be a time when I won’t miss my mother and my sister. They were my best friends. They were everything,
“It looked like her car and everybody, when I was walking up, said a mom and daughter died and I knew they had left and knew the only mom and daughter would be my mom and sister.”
She claimed that the TikTok celebrity and her mother had tragically died in a car accident “involving a reckless driver in Houston.” The accident’s time, nature, or scene have not been disclosed to the public in any other way.
A police officer and chaplain reportedly prayed for Cofield at the site, according to Eyewitness News.
According to Houston police, Murphy was driving the vehicle when a truck struck the vehicle she and her mother were in. There are currently no charges, but an investigation is still going on.
