Natina Reed funeral: the star was living in StudioPlus Atlanta motel at time of her tragic death in car accident
Natina Reed had been living in an extended stay motel when she was killed in a car accident last week.
The tragic RnB star was just 12 miles from the $45 per night StudioPlus Atlanta Peachtree Corners extended stay motel in Norcross, Georgia, when she was knocked down last Friday according to the police incident report.
Gwinnett County authorities are still seeking information to help explain the accidental death of the 32-year-old, who was a popular member of the 1990s girl group Blaque.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Natina Reed’s family is planning a press conference in the city to discuss the case, according to attorney Christopher Chestnut’s office.
Investigators are still trying to determine why Natina Reed was in the roadway and whether she was crossing or walking alongside it.
She was wearing dark clothing in an area that had no artificial lighting, according to the incident report.
Other than the driver, who was not charged, and a passenger in the car, there do not appear to be any additional witnesses.
Gwinnett police spokesman Sgt. Rich Long said: “It’s kind of a dark lit area. There is not really anything in that area that’s open at that time of night, that would be any kind of a draw to a person up there.”
Police said toxicology reports are pending and are standard in fatal accidents.
It comes after the likes of Brandi, Jordin Sparks and Gabrielle Union lead the celebrity tributes to R&B singer Natina Reed who tragically died in a car accident on Friday.
The Gwinnett Police Department said the driver of the vehicle which hit Natina Reed called 911 at 10:30 PM on Friday night.
They added that she was pronounced dead at Gwinnett Medical Centre 29 minutes later.
A press release relayed that Natina Reed “was in the roadway on Lawrenceville Highway near Hamilton Road when struck”.
Police say the driver “was determined to be not at fault and there are no charges pending”.
Natina Reed also appeared in the 2000 film, Bring It On, in which she played cheerleader Jenelope.
