TikToker Britney Joy and her mom have been killed in a car crash

The pair were involved in a violent car crash

TikToker Britney Joy and her mom have been tragically killed in a tragic car crash.

Britney Murphy was best known on social media as ThatGirlBritneyJoy for skits about getting ready for work in the morning, and gained popularity for her signature deadpan facial expressions seen throughout her hilarious POVs and Day in the Life vlogs.

But on Monday (19 June), the TikToker has sadly been identified as a victim in a horrific car collision that took place in Houston, Texas.

The 35-year-old's mother, Sherie Smith, 60, was also killed in the accident.

The pair had reportedly left Britney’s sister Tiffany Cofield’s home and were on their way to a Juneteenth celebration in Emancipation Park when the tragedy occurred.

Tiffany told ABC 13 she was on her way home when she stumbled upon the scene.

She said: "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."

Houston police have since said Britney was driving when a truck hit the vehicle she and her mother were in.

An investigation has reportedly been launched yet no charges have been made at this point in time, via Dexerto.

Opening up about her grief, Tiffany revealed: "There will never be a time when I won't miss my mother and my sister. They were my best friends. They were everything."

She added she wants people to remember 'the way they lived and the life they loved and who they inspired' rather than 'the way they died'.

Tiffany has since set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for Britney and Sherie’s funeral service.

She wrote in the fundraiser's description: "My mom and sister were tragically taken away from us way too soon in an accident involving a reckless driver in Houston.

"This was just as my sister, beloved TikToker Britney Joy, began rising up in fame for her 9-5 videos that hit the internet by storm.

"Everyone related to her stories and those of her characters."

She concluded: "Unfortunately, we were not adequately prepared to have to lay both my sister and mother to rest at the same time.

"This happened so suddenly and was truly something I could have never imagine [sic]. Losing my best friends."

The crash happened mere minutes before Britney posted what would be her last-ever TikTok.

In the video, titled 'POV: You forgot it’s Juneteenth – No work today!', the TikToker can be seen getting out of bed and leaving the house before returning with a bottle of red wine, dancing to some music and cosying up on the coach wrapped up in a blanket.

It has since received over 4.2 million views with over 18k comments from people sharing their grief at her and Sherie's untimely passing and sending their condolences.

One TikTok user commented: "It's so crazy how fast a life can change, RIP," while a second wrote: "I’m so..distraught…You were just here…omg RIP baby."

And another fan added: "I am at a loss for words. I wish this wasn’t true."
