Three women killed and friend loses baby in crash while celebrating lockdown end

Three women died and their pregnant pal lost her baby after a car crash on a treacherous route branded "death road".

The group, who had been friends since primary school, hadn’t seen each other in eight months and were celebrating the end of lockdown.

Charo Alvarez Amado, 26, Sofia Duro, 26, Florencia Barrios, 25, and Micaela Crino Pacher, 25, were set to enjoy a coastal break in Pinimar, Argentina.

They left their home city of La Plata, near the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires in a white Renault Clio – but the holiday turned to tragedy when they collided head-first with a family in a red Volkswagen Fox on Route 56.

Locals call the route "death road" because there is only one lane going in either direction.

Officials plan to turn it into a motorway and work is currently undergoing to make it safer.

Sofia, who was driving, and Charo, was in the front seat, both died as soon as the cards smashed into each other.

Micaela and Florencia were raced to a hospital from the scene of the crash.

They were later moved to a different hospital.

But Micaela, who saw in her 26th birthday in a life-threatening condition in hospital, died on May 21.

In a heart-rending Instagram post, the friend who they were going to see talked of the "emptiness" she feels.

Delfina Burlando wrote about how her mates made her "grow and learn a little more about what life is about".

She wrote: "I love you, I will always love you."

The only survivor of the group in the car, Florencia, was 33 weeks pregnant at the time of the crash.

She had an emergency c-section but her baby didn’t make it and passed away in the Ana Rosa Gutierrez de Madariaga Hospital.

Florencia had a broken arm, leg, and pelvis.

The school where the four old pals graduated, the Colegio Corazon Eucaristico de Jesus in La Plata, added a touching message and said: "In this painful moment we request a prayer for eternal rest."
