TEHRAN – Shabnam Rahmatian, the wife of poet Afshin Yadollahi, died on Thursday from injuries sustained in the car crash that resulted in the death of the poet earlier on March 15.

“A medical council has confirmed the death of my brother’s wife,” Yadollahi’s brother, Arash, told the Persian service of IRNA.

Yadollahi accompanied by Rahmatian and his brother-in-law was driving his car back home from Hashtgerd, a town near Tehran, late at night when a truck crashed into his car. Yadollahi died in the incident while his wife and her brother were badly injured.

Yadollahi, who was also a psychiatrist, began his professional activity with the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) in 1997. His very first songs were performed by singers Khashayar Etemadi and Shadmehr Aqili.

Theme songs from the TV series “The Tenth Night” and “Zero Degree Orbit”, both directed by Hassan Fathi, were composed by Yadollahi.
