A St. Thomas woman has been identified as the victim in a fatal crash in Tennessee.

Michelle Sampson moved from St. Thomas to Tennessee in 2016 for an opportunity with the automotive supplier she worked for. She’s survived by her husband and two children, a son and daughter.

A Facebook memorial page created on Wednesday saw an outpouring of love and grief for the woman described as a talented worker, wonderful friend, great role model, and loving wife and mother.

The four-vehicle crash on the Interstate 65 in Spring Hill, roughly 55 km south of Nashville, left multiple others injured.

Spring Hill police reported that two medical helicopters responded to the scene, which involved a vehicle engulfed in flames.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is leading the investigation into the collision.
