According to a Bedford Police report, 22-year-old Sophia Edwards, of 359 Leatherwood Rd., was traveling west on 16th Street approaching D Street in a 2008 Buick Encore.

At the same time, 23-year-old Samantha Gassaway, of Heltonville, had stopped her 2018 Chevrolet Cruze on 16th Street for two vehicles waiting to turn onto D Street.
