Her car flipped several times and ended up down an embankment, Channel 2 reported.
The driver, 52-year-old Reginald Stubbs, survived the crash, but Kennedy Segars was pronounced dead Monday at a local hospital because of brain injuries, the news station reported.

“I question that all the time,” Marvin Segars said. “Why’d you have to take her?”
Stubbs faces four charges, including first-degree vehicular homicide, DUI, serious injury by vehicle and following too closely, jail records show. Segars told Channel 2 he hopes Stubbs spends the rest of his life in prison.
“We want him to stay behind bars forever,” he said. “He took a life, so his freedom should be taken as well.”
Stubbs remains in the DeKalb County Jail without bond, according to jail records.
Alabama State University President Quinton T. Ross sent AJC.com a statement on the incident, which said:
“The ASU family extends our deepest condolences and prayers to Kennedy Segars’ family and friends during this difficult time. Ms. Segars was a proud member of the University’s 2018-19 freshman class, the first group of freshman to enroll in ASU since I became president. Her presence will be sorely missed by her classmates, friends and professors.”
Ross also said the university is providing counseling services to students affected by Segars’ death.
