A former beauty queen is dead after a tragic car accident.
Zanib Naveed, who was crowned Miss Pakistan World in 2012, died on Sunday (Dec. 1) when the 2018 Mercedes CL2 she was driving struck a curb and rolled over into oncoming traffic, according to Maryland State Police.
She was just 32 at the time of her death.
“It is a very upsetting time and terrible news and we can all hope and pray that her family gets through this painful situation,” the current Miss Pakistan World Sonia Ahmed said in a statement to People magazine.
A resident of New York, Naveed was ejected from the vehicle at the time of the accident and was declared dead at the scene.
“Zanib was truly a force to be reckoned with, always standing by her beliefs,” stated a tribute on her GoFundMe page. “All who knew Zanib can attest to her strong will, always accomplishing her goals in life. She paved her own path to success, and had a promising future ahead of herself. Zanib touched many lives, she was always making friends and meeting new people. She spread her laughter and her sense of humor to all she encountered. She was unique in more ways than one. She had a beautiful soul and she will forever be missed. Our lives will never be the same without her.”
Naveed is survived by her husband Ali-Haider Shah, parents Tabinda Naveed and Chaudry Qudrat and brothers Ali and Umer Naveed.
