TikTok star Kara Santorelli has tragically died aged just 18 years old. 

Santorelli, from Florida, US, had a whopping 53,000 followers on the social media platform.

The high school senior mostly shared videos singing along to the latest TikTok trends.

She apparently enjoyed spending time at the beach and boating with her family.

Find out how this TikTok star was busted by the FBI in the clip below…

Santorelli was killed when a car ploughed into her vehicle in a head-on collision on March 17.

The Florida Highway Patrol has stated that she was driving on Highway 29 in Escambia County, Florida, and a Chevrolet sedan careened the wrong way, smashing into her Nissan SUV.

Santorelli is believed to have died in the wreck while the other driver – who is yet to be identified – also perished after getting trapped in their vehicle.

Just days before the tragedy, the Florida teen had taken to TikTok and went viral with a video boasting about her safety record while posing inside a car.

It was captioned: “When they try [to] call me a bad driver but I’ve never hit a person or an actual car.”

It has since been viewed over 15 million times.

In a memorial post on Facebook, Santorelli’s aunt opened up about her heartbreak.

She penned: “A little piece of my heart died today when I found out my niece went to heaven.

“I love your beautiful soul Kara!”
