It is a terrible drama that took place on Sunday July 3, 2022, in Bodrum, Turkey. After a “heated argument” around 3 a.m. while in a nightclub, Yazmin Oukhellou and Jake McLean hit the road in a Mercedes E-Class. Around 4:30 a.m., while driving on a road that crosses the mountains between the coastal town of Bodrum and the seaside town of Yalikavak, the man reportedly lost control of his vehicle.
According to information revealed by the Mail Online, the car would have rolled down a cliff of about thirty meters in height. After the accident, Yazmin Oukhellou, known for having participated in the program The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) would have managed to get out of the vehicle to join the road. According to an official from the Turkish prosecutor’s office in Bodrum: “Yazmin’s arm was bleeding and she managed to get to the road.” She then allegedly stopped a motorist, shouting: “Help me, my friend is dead”.
Jake McLean is believed to have died at the scene of the accident
According to the assistant prosecutor, the accident would have been fatal to the Briton, the damage having been mainly caused on the driver’s side. “Jake died at the scene despite attempts by paramedics to save him,” he revealed. According to initial investigations, the 33-year-old man who was driving the vehicle would have driven “well above” the authorized speed limit of 65 km / h. According to locals, the road taken by the reality TV stars is particularly dangerous because of a series of sharp turns, difficult to see in the dark.
Yazmin Oukhellou, very shocked by the death of her friend, had an operation on her arm and is now recovering at Acibadem Hospital in Bodrum. For their part, the investigators are trying to determine if Jake McLean had been drinking at the time of the tragic accident. The couple had started dating in May 2021, before revealing their relationship in December of the same year. Separated since the beginning of the year, they would have gone to Turkey to sign a trade agreement.
