“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this time,” Cheney said.
Chick-fil-A posted a message on the Facebook page for its Dahlonega location. Basden worked there.
"Our hearts are heavy today as we mourn the loss of one of our own," Chick-fil-A said in the post. "We will remember Trenton Basden as a team player, hard worker, and most of all part of our Chick-fil-A Family. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers, and extend ours to his family during this tough time."
The driver of the Toyota was not injured in the crash, which remains under investigation.
