A social media influencer died in August following his involvement in a motorcycle crash in southern Türkiye only weeks before his wedding, according to Hürriyet.
Burak Can Tas, 23, was riding his motorcycle on a street in central Sarıçam district in Adana when he hit a dog, lost control and fell off his bike, Hürriyet reported. Police and emergency responders reported to the scene and took the critically injured Tas to the hospital by ambulance, where he died of his injuries.
Tas tried to avoid the dog and hit the barriers on the road instead, according to a separate report on X. (RELATED: REPORT: Newly-Engaged Woman Plunges Off Cliff To Her Death Just Moments After Boyfriend Proposed)

Before his death, Tas was preparing to marry Yaren Kara, fellow motorcycling buff and social media influencer, the outlet noted.
“I didn’t know how to love or be loved until now, I learned with you, my love,” Kara said in part on social media following the proposal, adding she was “ready to walk and drive with you until the end of my life.”
