AceShowbiz – Country music star Lindsey Lagestee died after being struck by a car aged 25.
The Dixie Crush singer, who co-founded the group in 2015, passed away after being hit by a car on the way to a performance in Illinois on February 14, 2020, confirmed the cover band via its Facebook page.
“Some of you may have already heard the terrible news, but It is with the heaviest of hearts, we sadly share that Lindsey Renee passed away on Monday due to complications from the accident last Friday,” the statement read. “Our hearts are broken over this senseless tragedy.”

In the message, the band called Lindsey an “incredible performer, great friend and the best bandmate.” They also thanked their fans for the outpouring of support following the tragedy.
A funeral service will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2020.
