On Friday at around 4:15 pm, she sent the first video to her family chat group showing the windshields of her car fully wrapped in snow.

Tomeshia Brown Taylor’s sister was annoyed by her sister’s death and raised her frustration, saying:

“I feel like everybody that tried to get to her got stuck. Fire department, police, everybody got stuck,” she said.

“Why didn’t they have chains on their tires? This is a state that is known for snow.”
