The Federal Highway Police (PRF) reported this Monday (27) that the accident of singer Tarik Lima and his girlfriend, Gabrielle Oliveira, was caused by a drunk driver. The driver of the vehicle hit the back of the couple’s motorcycle, which did not resist the injuries.
According to the PRF, the accident occurred in the early hours of last Friday (24), at KM 96 of the BR-101, in Bayeux, in the Metropolitan Region of João Pessoa.

The driver responsible for the accident had “impaired psychomotor ability due to the influence of alcohol – drunken driving”, detailed the corporation’s report.
Also according to the document, a blood alcohol test (breathalyzer test) identified that there was 0.5 milligrams of alcohol per liter of air expelled by the driver’s lungs. He was then arrested.
