Natalia Borisovna Borodina, a Russian woman, was taken to hospital where she died of serious injuries, Russian media reported.
Footage of the accident, which happened in the Dominican Republic, was filmed by her Ukrainian friend Ivanna Boirachuk, 32, the driver of the car. In the clip, which some viewers may find upsetting, a topless Ms Borisovna Borodina can be seen playing up to the camera and hanging out of the window. The 35-year-old’s head then appears to hit a passing object, believed to be a lamp post
The crash happened on a highway near Punta Cana. Ms Boirachuk immediately stopped the red Kia Picanto car after her friend suffered the injury. Ms Borisovna Borodina, from Moscow, is thought to be a mother.
