A “SERIAL racist Karen,” who was filmed spewing hate in multiple tirades, has died after she stepped out into traffic and was hit by a fire truck on Monday.
Rachel Dawn Ruit, from North Carolina, died on Tuesday in what police believe was an accidental incident.
“Karen” is a pejorative term for an entitled white woman.
The 41-year-old first made headlines in June and early July after being filmed screaming racist slurs and allegedly attacking a woman in a hijab and Black teenager.
On July 4, Ruit was arrested and charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and second-degree trespassing.
Prior to her arrest, Ruit was filmed several times repeatedly shouting the N-word.
On Monday, an eyewitness saw Ruit struck by an Asheville Fire Department pickup truck after stepping in front of traffic.
A black woman, who remains unidentified, was seen praying intently over Ruit as emergency responders aided her.
“There were over a dozen bystanders that had come to see what was going on,” the witness wrote on Twitter.
“And then there was one lady who was praying out loud & I mean praying very intensely…begging God to please let this lady survive.
“And that 1 person was the Black lady standing right in front of me in this picture.
“Praying & praying & praying and in tears for coincidentally the same woman how was yelling the N word with such hatred in her hear. Just saying’.”
