Singer Lindsey Lagestee, best known as one of the members of the band, Dixie Crush had passed away at the age of 25.
The singer was hit by a car and the incident happened on 17th February 2020.
Fellow band member Jim Nonneman told Taste of Country Lagestee was hit by a vehicle while crossing the street on her way to a show in Chicago on Friday, February 14.
"She had just parked a couple of blocks down for the club we were scheduled to play," he told the outlet. "She exited her pickup truck and was making her way to the venue when she was struck by a car."
Per the publication, Lagestee was then rushed to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill. The band confirmed she passed away days later "due to complications from the accident."
"Our hearts are broken over this senseless tragedy," the group wrote in part of a Facebook post.
Lagestee was one of the founding members of Dixie Crush—a "country party band" in the Midwest.
"From the very beginning, everyone knew she was something special," the Facebook post continued. "Her Uncle Tony described her best as a supernova. Above and beyond her beautiful voice, Lindsey just had a way of connecting with every audience leaving an indelible impression. Not only would she give an amazing performance, but after every show, Lindsey would come offstage, take time to meet anyone who wanted to say hi, take pictures, and build friendships."
A funeral service is scheduled for tomorrow.
May her soul rest in peace.
