Nigar Jamal — the singer better known to Eurovision fans as ESC 2011 winner Nikki — has survived a terrifying car accident that sent her vehicle skidding off the road. The incident occurred while she and her friends were filming a video selfie.
Azerbaijan’s Ses Information Agency reports that the accident took place as Nikki was en route to a sanctuary at Besh Barmag, one of the most famous mountains in the Caucasus. As you can see in the terrifying footage below, the women are having fun and listening to music before losing control of their vehicle.
The great irony is that Nikki is an ambassador for the Make Roads Safe campaign sponsored by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
Speaking after the accident, Nikki had this to say: “Police told us that this road is really so dangerous. God kept us safe that’s why we are ok now.”
Nikki previously released the song “Can’t Let You Go” in support of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. “Please wear your seat belt and never let your loved-ones die on the roads!” she said in a Facebook message at the time.
