A Rockland County beauty queen crowned Miss Pakistan World in 2012 was killed over the weekend when her car hit a curb and overturned into oncoming traffic, police said.
Zanib Naveed, 32, was driving a 2018 Mercedes CL2 eastbound on the Inter-County Connector in Maryland around 11:40 p.m. Sunday, when she attempted to take a curve to Route 1 and her vehicle struck a curb and flipped over, state police said.
She was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.
Alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash, according to a preliminary investigation. Naveed was the only person in the car.
The married Pomona resident, who attended Pace University, represented the city of Lahore in the 2012 Miss Pakistan World pageant in Toronto, where she was crowned the winner. She also participated in the Miss Earth 2012 pageant in the Philippines.
