SAO PAULO, Brazil - Police say a woman has died on the way to a cemetery when a traffic accident hurled her husband's coffin against the back of her neck.

Police said 67-year-old Marciana Silva Barcelos was in the front passenger seat of the hearse when the accident occurred Monday in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul.

Barcelos died instantly.

Her 76-year-old husband, Josi Silveira Coimbra, died Sunday of a heart attack while dancing at a party.

The driver of the hearse and Barcelos' son suffered minor injuries.

Have you noticed that the husband died at age 76 and the wife died at age 67... the numbers are just flipped. Coincidence?

And if you add the values they are the same!!!!

7+6 = 6+7.... Wow!!!

Wow, what a painful week for the son.

Although really, probably more painful for the mother.

Who rides in the hearse?

Isn't there a partition? Or is the coffin right there. If there is no partition then we would hear many more of these stories.

Why was the mother not riding with the son?

So many unanswered questions

I guess that's just how they roll in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
