'I'm gonna die tonight': Teen's haunting final text before crash

It’s been revealed that a New Zealand teen sent a prophetic and haunting text just hours before she died in a fatal car crash.

Tayla Alexander, 17, was a passenger in a car crash in Christchurch, on New Zealand’s South Island, on November 27 about 11pm.

Police said she died in a crash while another person in the car was left in a critical condition.

That person was her sister Sunmara, 16, who was left in a critical condition before she died in hospital on December 13, which was also her birthday.

New Zealand publication Stuff.co.nz reported that Tayla had texted a friend before the horrific crash.

"Bro, I'm gonna die tonight," the text read, according to the publication.

Her friend was shocked by the message to which Tayla reportedly responded: “I've never been driven around the Port Hills so fast before”.

Jason Alexander, Tayla’s dad, wouldn’t comment on the texts to local media.

He told Stuff he was angry at the driver at first but has offered forgiveness as “anger is not going to solve anything”.

The driver is yet to be charged.
