Pakistani beauty queen Zanib Naveed was killed in a car crash over the weekened in Maryland, New York.
Rockland County beauty queen — crowned Miss Pakistan World in 2012 — was killed over the weekend when her car hit a curb and overturned into oncoming traffic, police said.
According to The New York Post, Zanib Naveed, 32, was driving a car eastbound on the Inter-County Connector in Maryland around 11:40p.m. on Sunday, when she attempted to take a curve to Route 1 and her vehicle struck a curb and flipped over. She was ejected from the vehicle and died on the spot.
Alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash, according to a preliminary investigation. Naveed was the only person in the car.
The married Pomona resident, who attended Pace University, represented the city of Lahore in the 2012 Miss Pakistan World pageant in Toronto, where she was crowned the winner. She also participated in the Miss Earth 2012 pageant in the Philippines.
Her Facebook account lists her as the president of the Miss Pakistan USA organization.
“She had a smile that could light up a room, a powerful personality, captivating eyes, a voice that demanded attention and beauty like no other,” reads a GoFundMe page set up to help Naveed’s family with funeral arrangements.
“She had a beautiful soul and she will forever be missed. Our lives will never be the same without her.”
In her last post on Facebook Nov. 21, Naveed posted an image of herself sitting on a staircase in a sparkly gold dress. “The greatest self is a peaceful smile, that always sees the world smiling back,” she wrote.
