On December 11th, Ali Spice was involved in a hit-and-run accident that left her, along with three others, dead and several others injured. She was riding as a passenger in a vehicle that was headed down State Road 44 when a man driving the wrong way in a Toyota Tacoma slammed into her vehicle at 2 a.m.
Devin Perkins, who was dating Ali Spice at the time of her death, was driving the vehicle that was struck. The two other passengers in the vehicle with her are believed to be Kyle Moser and Ava Fellerman – who is the daughter of a well-known and well-established Northeastern Pennsylvania attorney.
Spice was in the midst of building a strong following on TikTok at the time of her death. She was nearing the coveted 1 million followers’ club – being just 80,000 followers away. She also boasted nearly 100,000 followers on Instagram. Ali had just turned 21 years old last month and had so much more life to live.

Born Alexandra Dulin, Ali Spice is remembered as a ‘hard-working proud young lady’ by her father, James Dulin. He explained how she was just home for Thanksgiving and – like many other 21-year-olds who live in a different state from their parents – was planning another trip home for the Christmas holiday.
Now, the Dulin family has to live with the fact that they’ll never get to see their Alexandra again. “I guess with my daughter you always take a lot of pictures. But man, we took a lot of pics over Thanksgiving, and who knew that those were the last pictures that we would take? At least together,” he said to Fox 35 News.
The one thing James Dulin wants right now is justice because police have yet to identify or arrest the driver of the vehicle that was going the wrong way down the highway. The suspect is being described as a ‘heavyset man’ and allegedly ran off after the accident. A criminal investigation is ongoing in Florida.
While they haven’t identified the driver, he did leave a passenger behind in his vehicle – a 36-year-old woman who suffered serious injuries in the crash. As of right now, she has yet to tell authorities who was behind the wheel at the time of the crash. The vehicle is impounded and evidence is being collected.
James Dulin Appreciates All the Love and Support for Ali Spice
James Dulin is doing what any father would do in his current situation – making sure his daughter is remembered in the same way he remembers her. While she worked at Hooters, she did it for fun and was much more focused on her social media efforts. She was intent on using her platform to help people.
“She was a hard-working proud young lady who carved out her own entrepreneurial path… and she did it on her own. She knew how to blend a message of helping people, and she knew when she needed to I don’t know if you want to call it spice it up and get more eyeballs, Dulin said of his late daughter.
He went on to explain that she worked hard to diversify her audience on social media – which primarily started out as men, but later included women. “She had purposefully built up a following, so she had a voice, and then when she had the voice she used the voice to try to help girls,” Dulin continued.

He expressed how appreciative his family is for all the love and support being thrown their way in the week following the death of Ali Spice. “It’s unbelievable to know how much perfect strangers could care about our 21-year-old daughter,” he said, adding that they’ve received everything from flowers to food.
