Williams-Dunning was driving a 2007 Chevy Tahoe while pulling a boat in Henry County, Tennessee on Saturday night when it crashed, said Wesley Moster, a spokesman for the state Department of Homeland Security and Homeland Security. Her husband, Tyler Dunning, 29, was in the passenger seat.
The SUV, which was traveling south, crossed the middle section of the highway and began “changing clothes,” Moster told CNN in an email. He crossed the northern lanes and finally stopped at the east shoulder of the road.
Williams-Dunning was killed while her husband was taken to hospital. An investigation into the crash is ongoing, Moster said.
“I have no words. On Friday morning I talked to the family to take a picture with it and I had no idea it would be our last along with my precious little sister Katie. We all went to the funeral of my great aunt we all loved on Thursday, and we are now faced with another one, ”Williams wrote. “All we need are prayers.”
She added that her son-in-law Dunning was “awake and responsive”.
Celebrities, including actor Reese Witherspoon and model Lily Aldridge, commented below her cast on expressions of condolence.
“I’m so sorry. I’m praying for my family,” Witherspoon wrote.
