Julieanna Shedrawy was killed when a truck tire flew off and went into her windshield Thursday in Sandy Springs, police said.

A GoFundMe page has launched in memory of Julieanna Shedrawy, who died last week after a tire from a pickup truck landed on her car on Ga. 400.

The page is set up as a college fund for Shedrawy’s two daughters, Madison and Mikayla.

It launched on Friday with a goal of raising $50,000. By Monday morning, it had reached $13,500.

The woman who started the page is Niki Daniels Oginz of Alpharetta. She writes on the page that Shedrawy’s daughters were “her life.”

One donor, Peggy Davidson, wrote that Shedrawy “brought light to all of our lives even during a down day.”

Shedrawy, 48, was married and lived in Alpharetta. She worked as a sales coordinator at Atlanta Fixture & Sales Co. Inc., a business near the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport.

The incident on Ga. 400 occurred just before 8 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 19 when a truck traveling north on the highway at Pitts Road lost a wheel and tire. The wheel went over the wall to the other side of the highway and landed on Shedrawy’s Nissan, police said.

Police and investigators believe the wheel came off due to a mechanical issue. The driver of the truck, Jorge Herrera, stayed on the scene for hours after the incident.

“She’s touched everybody’s life,” Shedrawy’s father, Cronis Alexsinas, told the AJC. “And they never forgot her.”

Funeral services for Shedrawy are set for Thursday, Oct. 26 in Alpharetta.
