Friends and family are mourning the loss of 22-year-old Ivy Gunter after she was killed in an early Wednesday morning crash on J.R. Allen Parkway.
Hunter Ames taught Gunter for three years at Smiths Station High School a few years ago. He said there was never a dull moment when Gutner was around.
Ames feels bad for all of the people who never got the chance to meet her. He tells News 3 his heart dropped when he heard the news of her death.
“It’s a tough day today. It was hard holding back tears while I was teaching today in my classroom and you know Ivy was special. She was friends and family. She left a mark on you,” Ames said.
Police said Gunter lost control of her car and crossed into another lane hitting another car.
Gunter leaves behind a young daughter. A memorial fund has been set up in Gunter’s name.
