A Taylor Swift fan died after being involved in a fatal two-vehicle crash while en route to see the pop superstar perform in Melbourne, Australia.
Mieka Pokarier, 16, died at the scene Thursday, according to the Weekend Australian, while her 10-year-old sister, Freya Pokarier, was transported to Sydney’s Westmead Hospital in critical condition and placed in an induced coma.
Mieka was reportedly sitting in the front passenger seat at the time of the head-on crash, while her sister was in the back seat.
Their mother, who was driving their SUV in the New South Wales region from the Gold Coast when they collided with a semi-trailer, was reportedly taken to Dubbo Hospital in stable condition and was treated for minor injuries.
The driver of the semi-truck they hit was also in stable condition and taken to Dubbo Hospital, per the local news outlet.
Mieka’s father, Peter Pokarier, shared his grief with a brief statement on Facebook.

“My family and what I live for … I’m devastated !!!!” he lamented Friday.

“This was supposed to be a road trip of a life time with them going to concerts in both Melbourne and Sydney,” she penned.
In an update early Saturday morning, Fox confirmed that Peter and the older sister of Mieka and Freya had been by Frey’s bedside at the hospital. Their mom has also been reunited with her family members.

“I’m so overwhelmed with the outpouring of generosity and love towards the family, wow over $4k already,” Fox wrote.
She concluded, “Thank you. As you can imagine there is a lot of work ahead of us and this will help immensely to reduce some of the pressure.”
The heartbreaking news comes months after a 23-year-old fan died from extreme heat at an Eras Tour show in Rio de Janeiro.
The Brazilian fan, Ana Clara Benevides, collapsed at the concert after she waited hours to enter the venue in scorching hot temperatures before passing away in the hospital.
Swift, 34, met with Benevides’ family at another one of her shows after saying she was “devastated” over the tragic passing. The singer’s reps could not immediately be reached for comment on Mieka’s death.
