Emma Fryer, the famous Poker player from the UK, has been killed in a fatal car accident in Czech Republic. She was killed whilst going to the World Series Tournament Czech Republic. The cause of the accident was major fog. According to the authorities, Fryer was using the GPS on her mobile device to navigate her friend, who was driving the car, through the fog. But unfortunately, the GPS didn’t show a big roundabout that was on their way. The car crashed into the concrete roundabout. Fryer’s friend is in the hospital. Emma Fryer’s sister, Liz Carter, said that there was no fault of the driver. It was “just a tragic accident” and had the GPS shown the roundabout, Fryer would have been alive.
