Pregnant Karolaine Vieira Magalhães Palermo was on her way to a maternity hospital in Cuiabá when the accident occurred that took the lives of her, her son and her mother, on Tuesday afternoon (7) on BR-70, in Cáceres.
Ivonete Vieira Magalhães Palermo, 46 years old, Karoline’s mother, died at the scene of the accident after being thrown when the vehicle they were in broke in half.
