The vehicle crossed over the grass median, then overturned and struck a car driven by Sunshine Nichole Williams who was traveling south on US Highway 29. The 21-year-old, who was doing DoorDash deliveries at the time, was declared deceased at the scene by emergency responders, according to authorities.

Lane fondly remembered Williams as someone who had many friends and a wonderful personality. She and her spouse met at school and were sweethearts since then. Lane writes in the GoFundMe that "she left behind a 1-year-old and an 8-month-old and a devastated husband who needs help." On a comment below the fundraiser, a user wrote, "My favorite memory of her will always be, her befriending Raelynn at Vacation Bible School at Upward. She will be so missed, she was loved by so many. Know that you are in my family's thoughts and prayers."

"The High Point Police Departments Traffic Unit is investigating this crash. Though charges are expected the investigation is active and still in the early stages, so no charges have been filed at this time," the police statement reads.
