###ORIGINAL MESSAGES BELOW###

Due to the timing of the crash and its proximity to a high school, the community is expressing concerns that the deceased was a student. Although we cannot yet release the name of the victim, we feel it is in the public's interest to disclose that the victim was an adult female in her forties, and not a high school student.

The identity of the victim will be released after family is notified of her death.
