Neriza Fojas was enjoying her bachelorette party when the unthinkable happened. The limo she and her friends were riding in caught fire, killing the bride and four of her friends. It is a truly heartbreaking story that will bring tears to your eyes.
Saturday night in San Francisco a nurse and bride set out with her bridal party to enjoy a right of passage before you get married, her bachelorette party. However as their limos was cruising along the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge it burst into flames, killing Neriza and four of her friends. There were four others that made it out, thanks to the help of the driver. The fire began in the trunk and spread very quickly. All of the ladies in attendance were fellow nurses of Fojas.
31-year old Neriza was a registered nurse who worked at the Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno. She was planning to return to her native country, the Philippines, next month to have her second wedding ceremony. According to the San Fransisco Chronicle she had married her husband a month ago but next month they were headed to the country she was born in a month for a second wedding. As of yet her husband has not been identified by name. Reportedly the girls were on their way to meet him at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Foster City, where a bridal shower for the couple was scheduled to take place. As I said the events of the evening are still a little unclear.
Instead of planning her wedding the family of Neriza Fojas are faced with the unbearable task of planning her funeral. There is not very much that has been released about the lovely Fojas, other than she was a good friend and sister. If she had any social media pages they have been taken down. However what has not been taken down and is actually starting to go viral, is the video of the car in flames. If you can stomach it then you can check it out below.
The cause of this tragic accident that took five people’s lives is still being investigated but it being called one of the worst ever. It is awful and our hearts go out to the family of all the women who were involved. If you anything additional to add or just want to express your condolences, we want to hear what you have to say.
