The crash occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Park Lane when Brown lost control of her car and struck a tree, according to a news release.
Flames engulfed the car, and Brown was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. No other vehicles were involved and the crash remains under investigation, according to investigators.
Michaela King, Brown’s daughter, launched a GoFundMe on Tuesday as she sought help to cover funeral costs and bills.
“She leaves behind five children and two grandchildren. The accident happened right in front of our house. My siblings and I witnessed the accident and are left traumatized and devastated after attempting to get her out of the car,” King said. “We don’t know where to start because our mom was our rock and when we didn’t know what to do, we came to her.”
