Investigators are currently determining the cause of a car crash involving a recent McIntosh High School graduate.

Jasmine Williams, 18, tragically lost her life in a crash Monday night around 7:30 p.m. on Highway 34 in Coweta County.

According to a WSB-TV report, police say Williams’ car went off the road and hit a concrete post and a fire hydrant. The vehicle went airborne and flipped at least seven times before Williams was ejected.

Several witnesses stopped at the scene to attempt to help Williams before she passed, including a nurse who administered CPR.

Williams was scheduled to begin her first semester of college at Clayton State University just two days after the crash occurred. 

She is survived by her mother Karen, father Billy, and older brother Paul, and will be laid to rest on Monday, June 25.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Karen Williams to help her family pay for funeral expenses. As of June 19, $11,195 have been raised, exceeding the $10,000 goal.

“Those that knew Jasmine will know that she would want us to celebrate her life,” Karen Williams wrote on the page.
