SOUTH MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police are investigating a single-car crash in South Memphis, in which a woman lost control of her car and was killed.
Hours after the fatal accident, Markita McGhee’s family came back to the scene to build this makeshift memorial.
McGhee’s uncle James Wilson said McGhee is a young mother of four.
"I'm kind of… I can't even get out the roads right now,” Wilson said.
People on the scene said McGhee lost control of her car on South Parkway early Monday morning after a pickup truck ran a stop sign on Castalia.
Police said McGee’s car then jumped the curb and clipped a tree before crashing into an iron fence around the embankment.
Police say two people jumped down to the woman to help her before first responders arrived.
McGee’s family told FOX13 they hope the driver of the truck that ran the stop sign will come forward so they can receive closure.
"I'm doing like the police I'm just going to get to the bottom of it,” Wilson said.
Investigators have not released any information about the truck that ran the stop sign.
