    Brazilian Marciana Silva Barcelos, 67, was on her way to the cemetery when the hearse she was travelling in was hit by another car.

    The coffin was thrown forward by the impact and slammed into her head, killing her instantly.

    Her husband Josi Silveira Coimbra, 76, had died the night before from a heart attack at a dance.

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

    The accident occured in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil's Southernmost state.
    Is this ironic or not, I can't tell.

    That's not ironic? Not by the way I use the word anyway.

    However; rather amusing, in the sickest way possible.

    That's gotta suck, but it's not ironic in the slightest.

    Quick funerals are the norm in many hot countries, for obvious reasons.

    For those saying it's "amusing", imagine if it happened to your parents then think again.
